Description

Revised in 2012 Maya: Amazing Inventions You Can Build Yourself introduces readers ages 9-12 to the world of the ancient Maya, the most advanced and mysterious civilization of the New World. From ceremonial masks to hieroglyphics, and calendars to musical instruments, Maya: Amazing Inventions You Can Build Yourself gives readers a chance to experience how the Maya lived, cooked, worshipped, entertained themselves, and interacted with their neighbors through hands on building projects that use common household supplies. Detailed step-by-step instructions for each project are combined with historical facts and anecdotes, biographies, and trivia. Together they give kids a first-hand look at daily life in ancient Mesoamerica.
