The Upper Unit Learns about the Ancient Maya


The Upper Unit is wrapping up its tour of the ancient world in early Mesoamerica. We have spent the last few weeks learning about the Maya. The students had the opportunity to learn about Mayan hieroglyphs and created “glyph blocks” of their names.

We also learned about Mayan numerals and base twenty mathematics. The students used this information to write their birthdates using Mayan numerals.
