Synopsis

Amazing Maya Inventions You Can Build Yourself Learn Some Hands-On History by Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt

Ages 9 to 12 years. The amazing accomplishments of the ancient Maya as well as the Maya currently living in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula are highlighted in this collection of 25 creative, educational, hands-on projects. Covering everything from the 20-base numbering system to the Maya's extensive trade relationships, kids learn about appeasing the gods with a jade ceremonial mask, language development with a screen-fold book for drawings and hieroglyphs, and Maya astronomy with a sand art picture of the cosmos. Informative text and sidebars teach about the Maya's impressive achievements in science, math, language, music, medicine, and architecture; and their daily activities and management of natural resources.
