Mayan Face

(2 ratings )
Second Grade Social studies Activities: Mayan Face

What You Need:

  • Paper plate
  • Pencil
  • Colored pencils
  • Picture of a Mayan calendar

What You Do:

  1. Browse the Internet with your child to get the facts on the Mayans and their special calendar. Why do some people believe the Mayans predicted the end of our world? Explain the difference between literal interpretations versus symbolic ones. Should the Mayan's prediction be taken literally? How does your child think such a prediction could be possible?
  2. Now it's your child's chance to create a little history of her own. Set the paper plate beside the picture of the Mayan calendar.
  3. Help her use a pencil to sketch out a Mayan face on the paper plate.
  4. Once she's satisified, have her use colored pencils to colour in the calendar. She can keep it brown or gray like the Mayans or she can mix it up and add whatever colors she desires.
  5. After she's finished, she can hang up her Mayan face anywhere she wants.
