The Ancient Maya Civilisation

Today Turtle class did their entry point lesson to our new topic: The Mayas.

We had a great lesson drinking hot chocolate and learning that we have chocolate today because of the Maya. They used to make this delicious hot drink with crushed cacao beans and water, sometimes adding a little chilli or cinnamon.

Not only did we sample some chilli hot chocolate, but we had some tortilla chips too. Corn tortillas are a Mayan staple and are enjoyed with most meals, especially stew and rice.

We are looking forward to learning more about the Mayas!
