Ancient America

This Moonday we will begin Chapter 11:  Ancient America (pages 284-307).  On Moonday we will learn about the geography of Mexico and the neighboring Central American countries.  Our next lesson will focus on the “people of the rubber country,” the Olmecs (1200-400 B.C.).  You will receive an assignment concerning these polytheistic people.  We will complete the chapter filling out a chart of the Maya civilization and watching a video about this complex civilization (A.D. 250-900).  Did you know that the Maya played a ball game called pokta-pok where the losers were sometimes killed as a sacrifice to Maya gods?  Oh yeah, it’s true, it’s true.
