  • Mayan Achievements
  • Catch me if you can!
  • Slow down!
  •               Mayan Achievements
  • It's so awesome!
  • So great!
  • Isn't it great that the new calendar tells us when to plant crops?
  • What would we do without it?
  • The Mayan civilization peaked around the 6th century, and lasted for about 1,200 years. It ended in 800 C. E. The Mayan civilization extended southeastern Mexico across modern-day Guatemala, Belize and the western parts of Honduras and El Salvador.
  • Mayan Achievements
  • No! Please don't sacrifice me! I'm to young!
  • One of the inventions of the Mayans was rubber without vulcanization. They used the rubber to make balls for them to play with. I think that rubber is important because if the Mayans didn't invent, then no one might have and we wouldn't have tires today. 
  • Theories
  • I'm sick!
  • Another one of the Mayans inventions was a 365 day calendar. But not just one, 3 different calendars, Tzolkin, Haab, and Long Count. I think that this is important because the calendar helped them to know when to plant/water their crops.
  • Actual Theory 
  • What are we going to do?
  • We don't have anymore water!
  • The Mayans also, constructed beautiful buildings. Such as, palaces, acropolises, pyramids, and astronomical observatories. I think that these buildings are important because without them the Mayans wouldn't have a place to do anything. They couldn't have governmental meetings, bury important people,  have religious meetings, and perform sacrifices.
  • Theory 1.  Warfare  Theory 2. Disease Theory 3. Famine Theory 4. Disaster or Environmental Change I think that the Mayans could have just started killing each other because maybe one person had something better than the other person.                                                         Theory 4. Disaster or Environmental Change
  • Do we have any food left?
  • Charge!
  • Nope.
  • Where is the rest of the water?
  • I don't know. I guess it dried up.
  • I think that the real reason the Mayan Civilization came to an end was because of a drought. If there was a drought, that means that there was no food or water, so they would have died. Also, drought can lead to warfare, disease, and famine. 
  • No!
  • We're going to die!
