    We're doing either the Mayans or the Aztecs in Summer 2-we have the choice, based on which one I can find a quality class text for!
    Any ideas gratefully received-seen a couple on Amazon, (Time Travelling Cat and Rainplayer) but both look too easy for our present cohort.Thank you.

    Hi, I would highly recommended getting a child friendly version of Popol Vuh. It's a Guatemalan text which records the oral history of the highland tribes and includes Mayan creation stories. The original is very interesting but you can find child friendly versions to summarise as well as take extracts from the original (translated!) text.
