PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Ancient Mayan Civilization

A slide presentation on the Ancient Mayan Civilization.
The ancient Maya were a complex and intriguing civilization. They built their civilization in the heart of the Central American rainforest. How did they adapt their buildings to living in such a soggy climate? What were their religious and social customs? How did they record their history and scientific achievements? What kind of government ruled the ancient Maya? What happened to their civilization and why?

This presentation, geared towards middle school students, explores the culture and astounding accomplishments of the ancient Maya. Discussions and multiple writing opportunities are built into the presentation.
