Teacher's Guide - Mayan Empire - Cooking Pot Details

This reusable guide covers 200 BC- 900 AD and the Mayan Empire. It is to be used in conjunction with the Mayan Empire Cooking pot (EDU 017). The Maya ruled large parts of Mexico and Central America. Maya art was expressed through the various mediums of architecture, mural painting, relief, sculpture, carving, ceramics, and pottery. The Maya planned ceremonies according to celestial cycles and their calendar was very accurate. Ceramic artists used slip paint, pigment, clay, and water to decorate their pottery and sculpture. They developed a style where they filled every possible space with a design. These designs include images of rituals, myths, hieroglyphs, and geometric motifs. The first Mayan pottery was shaped like their gourd containers.
