Storyboard Text

  • A normal day starts off for the people of the Maya civilization and each social class starts their work.
  • The nobles start by making sure the commoners are farming their land
  • The commoners would work on the land the nobles owned and the commoners would farm the food that the nobles ate.
  • Make sure you are working hard on my crops!
  • The commoners would work during the day while the nobles lived their easy lives.
  • The nobles went on with the rest of their day while the commoners worked for them
  • The nobles were often carried instead of walking because they thought they were too good for it.
  • The men might not always do this everyday. Sometimes they will become soldiers in war to fight.
  • As the day comes to an end the men commoners come home to their families and start working on tools.
  • Come children and help me work in the garden.
  • While the men worked in the field all day the women have done a number of jobs at the house.They have cooked, mended their garden that they get food from, weave cloth and taken care of the children.
  • The family comes back together to end the normal day and prepare for another days working tomorrow.
