BBC Bitesize: The Mayans

These colourful animations for BBC Bitesize transport young learners back in time to discover the civilization of the Ancient Maya. Our guide, the intrepid young Mayan, Jade Skirt, tells the epic story of Mayan society and culture; from farming and agriculture, games and recreation, beliefs and the afterlife – even human sacrifice!

The series consists of seven 1+ minute animations, a sample of which you can find on this page. Visit Splinter for a more detailed breakdown of the project. If you are in the UK, you can view the whole project on the BBC Bitesize page.
