  • civilised vs uncivilised Mayans by Logan

    Published 06/03/19, by Year Five

    This term we have been learning about the Mayans and we decided if they were civilised or uncivilised. We done a little tour and we looked at posters. Our group made different Mayans themes which were farming, chocolate, slaves, sacrifices and architecture. And i was the narrator/tour guide and I showed the parents different posters. After a while when we finished the tour the parents decided if the Mayans were civilised or uncivilised.

  • Sycamore Class Debate - Were the Mayans Civilised or Uncivilised?

    Published 06/03/19, by Year Five

    Last term, we started a debate as a class deciding whether the Mayans were civilised or not. I personally thought that the Mayans were mostly civilised. My reasons were, they created chocolate, learnt how to use maths, studied science and they even built astronomy towers.

    The reason I don’t think they were all civilised is because they had human and animal sacrifices.

    • The Mayans used the stars or the Aztec calendar to work out what day /month it was.
    • The Mayans built temples to be closer to the gods and they were made from stone.
