Synopsis

Maya Inventos Increibles que Puedes Construir tu Mismo by Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt

Revised in 2012 Maya: Amazing Inventions You Can Build Yourself introduces readers ages 9--12 to the world of the ancient Maya, the most advanced and mysterious civilization of the New World. From ceremonial masks to hieroglyphics, and calendars to musical instruments, Maya: Amazing Inventions You Can Build Yourself gives readers a chance to experience how the Maya lived, cooked, worshipped, entertained themselves, and interacted with their neighbors through hands on building projects that use common household supplies. Detailed step-by-step instructions for each project are combined with historical facts and anecdotes, biographies, and trivia. Together they give kids a first-hand look at daily life in ancient Mesoamerica.

Reviews

KLIATT This would be a great addition to a unit on Central American history for upper elementary, middle school and junior high students. Calliope Magazine Skillfully lends historical facts with detailed instructions for replicating the masks, hieroglyphs, calendars, and musical instruments fashioned by the ancient Maya.
