OLMEC, MAYA, & AZTEC
Have you ever seen a round calendar weighing tons, that tells time for hundreds of years? Or climbed 91 steps to the top of a pyramid? Explore fascinating Mesoamerican civilizations from Mexico through Central America and their important contributions to our calendar system, mathematics, pyramids, astronomy, hieroglyphics, and the arts.
Authentic ancient and symbolic animal hieroglyphs still used today are your tools for creating a clay plaque as a wall hanging. Alternative hands-on activities are using our hieroglyph stamps for printmaking, rubbings, or building clay pyramids inspired by the Mayans, Zapotecs, Aztecs, and others.
Best for participants 5 and older.
