Mayan-gnificent!

I tried to make that title into a pun. It didn’t work so well.

This week I’ve been teaching about Mayan religious beliefs as an example of an indigenous religion. I found this wonderful website from the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian to use.

Three reasons why it is fantastic:

1) It has several 3-5 minute video clips that are perfect for breaking up a lecture.

2) Each video has a PDF transcript–we used the creation story one as a reading in class, but also great for students with IEPs.

3) It has connections to a lot of great visual resources that you can use as well.

I definitely recommend checking it out!
