PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a bundle of the following two great lesson plans on the Mayans:
Mayan Daily Life Webquest
Mayan Journal/Writing Activity

The first lesson plan is a great webquest on the Mayan Empire from the following website

The same website is used for the second lesson plan. Students will take notes on the Mayans while pretending to be a spy. Students will write a five paragraph essay about the Mayans. This is a great bundle, please check out my other lesson plans and read what other teachers have said about them.

Religion
Social Classes

The webquest contains 33 questions and is a great introduction to a unit on the Mayas. An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The information for this webquest is from the following website.

Lesson 2

This activity is designed to allow students to write a five paragraph essay about the Mayans in a fun and creative way. Students will use the following website to gather information about the Mayans.

This website is very student friendly. The student handout will guide students through the five paragraph essay format. Each paragraph will focus on a different topic such as:

The assignment uses creative writing by allowing the students to take role of someone spying on the Mayans. A grading rubric is included for the teacher.
