Death masks in Year 6.

This week, we have been learning about the Ancient Maya civilisation. We focused on using artefacts to inform us of how they lived and what they believed in. We studied King Pakal's death mask and asked questions. In addition, we also studied how the Maya communicated. We found out that they wrote using their own hieroglyphs and created their own books called codices. We crated our own using well-known Maya symbols. After this, we then looked in-depth at their hierarchy system. We discussed what life was like for rich or poor members of Maya society. Next week, watch out- a member of Year 6 will be sacrificed! Who will it be? Only the high priest will decide! 

At Roebuck, we are historians!
