Students learn about Mayan writing system, or hieroglyphics, and the codices, which were one place they did their writing. In this assignment, students are directed to create their own Mayan codex with their own original glyphs and translate it as well. A brainstorm for their idea is on the second page of this worksheet. After they brainstorm, they can create a colorful final draft codex using construction paper! This is a nice simple introduction mini-project to Mesoamerica.
