This week, students will be starting to write a series of scripts showing their content knowledge of the civilizations of the Olmec, Toltec, Aztec, Maya, and Inca. Students have chosen to create a series of videos that will involve the entire class. Students will be writing a series of scripts in Google Docs to which each student will contribute. Students will then shoot video and edit them. They will later be presented to the school. 

For homework this week, students will be addressing the following:

Name specific elements of the Mayan Calendar. How was the calendar broken down? Be sure to mention The Haab,  The Tzolkin, and the Long Count. What did each element measure?
