Maya Calendar Activity (55 mins of class time required)
Dr Diane explains in detail how the Maya calendar works and also provides her own Maya calendar resource, so that children can make their own Maya calendar to keep. Teachers will be given a calendar conversion booklet that gives our dates and the Maya dates in real-time, so that the class can work out what the Maya date is for today and also future dates.
