Adventure to Central America and discover the land of the Mayans. First meeting some modern Mayan people, the students will learn about the stories and traditions of their culture; then they must crack the code that will transport them back in time to the ancient city of Tikal where they will have a go at farming, astronomy, a ball game, a beauty contest and a gory ceremony of human sacrifice! Including discussion, role-play and interactive performance, students will also devise their own scenes to reflect the demise of the Ancient Mayan civilisation. This immersive workshop will provide a great overview of the topic whilst developing skills in drama and group work.
