NOTE: If we are working with one class for a full day, we can go into more depth with certain topics if you wish us to.
In More Detail…
To begin with, let us teach you how to talk and count like a Mayan native. For instance, did you know that the word for number six sounds like a harsh action in English? You will also learn about their love of astrology, and how it helped them to predict many things. We will teach you about their culture, particularly what went on in their daily life.
There is a chance to play the deadly ball game. It is the first ball game recorded in the American continent. However, be warned, winning may not be what you expect!
We cover many aspects of the Mayan people. Also, we look at some of their farming techniques. Namely, the ‘Slash and Burn’ technique which enabling them to make the best use of the terrain. Find out about specific rituals that were required before burying their dead. Did you know they also believed in magical creatures known as the Alux? They were very lucky, but could also be quite naughty!
Therefore, why not book our workshop and let us take you deep into the Mayan world!
Up to 90 children (3 classes) can take part in a full days workshop. For large groups we will need to split the day up slightly.
A big hall is ideal for large groups. However quite often we can fit into one or more classrooms dependent on the group size.
