Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on the Mayas. This is a half-page worksheet with two compound sentences and four comprehension questions. Depending on the learners you serve, this document could function as a do-now exercise to begin a class or independent practice to send home.
Or, you can do what you want with it: the worksheet is formatted in Microsoft Word, so it is open source and therefore available (as is just about everything on this blog) to do with as you need or want.
If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
When I read about the Mayas – they weren’t conquered by a particular person – only the Spanish empire of the time [1600s].
[unlike the Incas – Pizarro in their case – and the Aztecs – I think the Aztecs are somewhere in an earlier part of Mark’s Text Terminal – along with other Mesoamerican peoples and tribes].
[So I am still finding out who the Aztecs were or weren’t conquered by].
And I am wondering how long before Jesus Christ they had lived and settled.
