Lesson Planned

Mayan Archaeologist Literacy Lesson Bundle

This lesson plan follows on from the Prime VR (Virtual Reality) workshop ‘Mayan Archaeologist’ but can be used as a standalone Literacy lesson about instruction texts.

Pupils will have the chance to read a high-quality text about the Maya Ball Game which is specifically designed to match the writing expectations for Key Stage 2. Your class can then search for the features of the instruction text using the writing checklists which are differentiated for LKS2 and UKS2.

They can then attempt to write their own instruction text using their notes from the model text and their writing checklist to ensure they have included the correct features to meet age related expectations for this text type.

What is included?

  • A model instruction text about the Maya ball game
  • A comprehensive lesson plan
  • Information text writing checklists for LKS2 and UKS2
  • Pictures and diagrams which can be cut out and stuck into their books

Curriculum links and topics:

  • Mayan Civilisation
  • Chichen Itza
