Year 6 Homework (Friday 20th May)

Topic

This week, we would like the children to start an independent research project about an area of the Maya Civilisation. Below are a list of suggested topics the children could choose:

Maya food and drink

Maya gods and religious beliefs

Maya clothing

Maya writing system

Maya hierarchy

Maya housing

The children need to research their chosen topic and produce either a PowerPoint presentation or an information booklet/leaflet to share with their classmates the week commencing Monday 6th June. Therefore this project will continue over the half term holidays. Here are some suggested websites to help you to get started (please copy and paste web address into your browser):
