This resource uses National Geographic's 10 Common Myths about the Maya to prompt students to uncover facets of Maya life through inquiry-based learning. This activity challenges students to think critically about "myths" of history, and how facts can be lost in translation. This promotes the idea of looking at history with a critical lens, and examining information for accuracy.
