History in Year 4

This term, Year 4 students are learning about the Mayan civilisation. This unit commenced with an immersion afternoon, where Mayan music set the scene as children created Mayan masks using clay and paint. They discussed the use of the masks and instruments used to create music. Well done Year 4 students!

Next, they will conduct research about various aspects of Mayan civilization including their location, temples, language, ‘slash and burn’ method and society.
