Product description

Engaging activity sheets encourage children to investigate the Maya world, through their calendar, maths, cities, art, writing and more.

Simply hover a tablet or phone over the pages to watch players compete in the ancient ballgame of Pok-ta-Pok or explore a 3D Maya pyramid.

There are 10 ActiveBETT AWARDS 2016_winnerWorksheets in this book.

Each ActiveWorksheet develops a different primary history curriculum theme such as mapping the Maya or calendars.

The ActiveWorksheets can be photocopied, and the trigger images will even work in black and white.

The book includes a step-by-step teacher guide and a range of extension activities.

Alongside this book is a free appĀ for Android and iOS.

The app uses ActiveLens augmented reality technology, that Computeam has created to bring the pages of the book to life.

I used ‘A Journey through the Maya world’ with my Year 6 class. The children were amazed by the technology. The use of augmented reality really engaged the pupils and I loved watching their faces as the pages came to life!

School history books can often be really dull, but this interactive resource with its easy to use app is great fun. With the expertise of Dr Diane Davies, you can be sure that this resource gives an accurate account of the Maya World.
