Product Description

In this very hands-on Maya CSI Investigation, students take on the role of historians, scientists, and researchers as they try to uncover the reasons behind the downfall of the Mayan Empire!  

Students are engaged with a short video to start the investigation, then read through their confidential case files where they analyze four separate theories on the Mayan downfall. Then, students complete a picture-progression where they assume that all four theories played a role in their decline.

Finally, students are hired on by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and are asked to explain what they believe was the reason behind the collapse of this once-great world empire. Students must offer up an explanation that takes all four theories into consideration! Too, students must offer "tips" for a future civilization to ensure their survival!

Tons of fun!

A key is included!!

* An alternate version is also included in case you would like to give students a packet of questions to navigate between stations! *
