Maya tortillas

The children learned all about Maya food in this lesson. They learned how the early Maya were hunter gatherers but they soon developed farming techniques which allowed them grow their main food resource—maize. We looked at the different foods that the Maya made from maize including tortillas. The children then worked in mixed groups of six to change a tortilla recipe and keep the same ratio and proportion. They weighed their ingredients and made their tortillas.
