Storyboard Text

  • Alright kids, before the game starts, are there any questions?
  • I have one. What exactly is this game?
  • Well, it's an ancient game that originated in Mesoamerica. It was played by many tribes for religious and cultural reasons. Today, It's called "Pok-ta-Pok." 
  • Mrs. Flora, what are the rules of the game?
  • The most important rule is to shoot the ball through the stone hoop without touching the ball with your hands and feet.
  • Oh, the ball is made of natural rubber from tree sap.  It's about the size of a volleyball and it's really heavy (about 4 kilos).
  • What about the ball they're using?
  • Mmm. Enjoy it, kids!
  • Look! they're starting! Woohoo!!
