The picture below is from the pre-Columbian (meaning “before the arrival of Columbus”) era.  It is a Maya Temple built 1,000+ years before the arrival of Columbus in the Americas.

The Maya lived in what is now Guatemala and Belize.

1.  What do you think was the purpose of this temple?

2.  What does the size and shape of the structure tell you about the skills of the Maya?

3.  The Maya calendar ends on Dec 21, 2012.   What do you think will happen on that night?

100+ words.   Spellcheck and proofread your work before you press “Publish”.
