    The Mayans lived over 1,500 years ago in the rainforest. They lived in little villages in houses made out of poles rapped tightly together and dry mud covering the poles to make it water proof and they made the roofs made up of straw, hay and grass.They also put there dead family members underground under there house. The first people to find the Mayan remains was in 1846.

    This half term I have really enjoyed learning about Mexico and the ancient Mayans.My favorite thing about the Maya is that they could build huge structures only using stone some of these Mayan temples can even be seen today there is ,Uxmal,Chichen-Itza,Lamanai and Tikal. My favorite thing about Mexico is the food because there is such a wide variety of spices and flavors you can get a hot and spicy taco or a not very spicy enchilada.
