Product Description

KidsArt is all about hands-on learning, and this interactive activity book explores the fascinating lives of Mexico’s ancient Maya people with more than two dozen hands-on projects. The amazing accomplishments of the ancient Maya as well as the Maya currently living in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula are highlighted in this collection of 25 creative, educational, hands-on projects.

Covering everything from the 20-base numbering system to the Maya’s extensive trade relationships, kids learn the significance of a “jade” ceremonial mask, language development with a screen-fold book for drawings and hieroglyphs, and Maya astronomy with a sand art picture of the cosmos. Informative text and sidebars teach about the Maya’s impressive achievements in science, math, language, music, medicine, and architecture; and their daily activities and management of natural resources.
