Your students will create a two-minute skit in groups of three that demonstrate the characteristics of the three periods of Mayan history - pre-classic, classic and post-classic. Students will make the skit entertaining to watch, but also must incorporate significant historical facts. They'll present the skit in front of the class and in doing so, will practice their presentation and public speaking skills.
Included in the Product
• Step-by-Step Directions to guide the students to create the skit
• A sample of Mayan names to make the characters authentic
• A planning guide
• Plot suggestions
• Answer Key
• Student Reflection
Best of all, this project makes history fun for students!
