Storyboard Text

  • The Mayan Civilization 
  • Hello, I'm Canneo, an ancient Maya who has traveled to the future.  I have came to tech all modern day about the Mayans.
  • The Mayans lived in southern Mexico. They lived there from 1800 B.C to A.D. 250. 
  • The Mayans Achievements
  • The Mayans inveted the writing system. by 700 B.C. 
  • The Mayans invented lost of things that we use today.
  • The  Mayans Achievements
  • They used beans while counting and figured out the concept of zero.
  • The Mayans figured out the concept of zero thousands of years before the Europeans did.
  • 
  •  Maya of the southern lowland region reached their peak during the Classic Period of Maya civilization (A.D. 250 to 900), and built the great stone cities and monuments that have fascinated explorers and scholars of the region.
  • The Mayans Achievements
  • Finally,  the Mayans invented the calendar that we use today.
  • The writing system developed was the first form of communication beyond the use of pictographs.  I  thought the writing system  is important because without the writing system we wouldn't have any idea how to write.  With the writing system we can communicate.
  • The Theories 
  • The Mayan and other Mesoamerican cultures used a vigesimal number system based on base 20 (and, to some extent, base 5), probably originally developed from counting on fingers and toes. I think this was important becasue they invented math and we use math in our lifes all the time.
  • The Theory 
  • The Maya calendar consists of several cycles or counts of different lengths. The 260-day count is known to scholars as the Tolkien, or Tolkien. The Tzolkin was combined with a 365-day vague solar year. I think the Mayan calendar is important because if we didn't have a calendar we wouldn't know what the date was.
  • I think over-farming disproves being a theory of how the Mayans civilization came to an end. 
  • Warfare
  • Disease
  • Over-Farming
  • I think warfare would be most likely what happened to the Mayans because they were very violent and they had lots of wars.
