This Powerpoint uses English, cognates, and simple Spanish to discuss the ancient Mayans and their connection to solar eclipses and astrology. It is a great resource to use with beginning classes to discuss Monday's eclipse! Several multiple choice questions (students hold up a certain number of fingers) are sprinkled throughout to encourage student involvement and engagement.
Speaking suggestions are included in the notes section below each slide.
The PowerPoint can be easily modified to higher and lower levels by changing the language to include more Spanish or English, respectively.
