As part of our topic about Mexico, we learnt about its ancient civilisations, focusing on the Maya. After a bit of background information and an introduction to these people, where we compared them with the Aztecs, we got into groups. Each group was assigned a different aspect of Maya life that they had to research and then present their findings using powerpoint, to teach the class. This was a great way of learning from one another!
Our topic this term is: Ancient Egypt. We started by looking photgraphs of some artefacts from this time period. In our table teams we had to decide what we thought the objects were, what they were used for and what they were made of. We then found out the true answers! This taught us a lot about what life was like for the ancient egyptians, and also taught us about their beliefs and customs.
