Our Maya Civilization lesson plan introduces students to the Mayan Civilization and the events during its time-period in history. Many students may know very little about the Mayans, though it was one of the most advanced civilizations in history along with the Aztecs and Inca. There is an incredible amount of information available for study, and this lesson is an overview of the main characteristics of the Mayans. During this lesson, students are asked to match terms to their definitions or significance, demonstrating their understanding of lesson terms and vocabulary. Students are also asked to answer questions about Maya Civilization based on the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe and identify the Maya Civilization.
