History

Today we are going to be comparing the historical periods of the Ancient Greeks and the Mayans. As you know, the Ancient Greeks were a focus for us in Autumn Term 1, so we know a lot about their civilisation.

 

We are going to be recapping on the information we know about the Ancient Greeks and researching and discovering what is was like in the Mayan civilisation.

 

We are going to comparing the daily live from both civilisations. Identifying the key differences and the similarities between both civilisations.

Step 1

Read the information about the Ancient Greeks on the next 4 slides below.

 

This will help us recap on how the Ancient Greeks lived on a daily basis. It will tell us about their houses, food they ate, clothes they wore and jobs they had to do.

Step 2

Read the information about the Mayans on the next 3 slides and watch the video clips that will tell you more about their civilisation.

 

This will help us understand how the Mayans lived. It will tell us about their houses, food they ate, clothes they wore and jobs they had to do.

 

The video links will be below the slides that they represent. Just look at the picture with the arrow, this is the video that you need to watch.

Task

Using the information you have just learned about the Ancient Greeks and the Mayans. Identify what is different about each civilisation and what is similar about each civilisation.

 

Write the date and LC and draw a table (using a ruler) like the example below. Write the sub-headings that are also shown below in the example.

 

I would like for you to identify:
