Take some time to learn a few things about the Mayan culture at this website and come back to this site often as it is full of interesting material about the Mayan people, places and its culture. Chose one section at a time.  Take it slow.  It’s a site that could take two months to read with your child little by little if it is interesting to him/her.  There is no hurry to learning.  Can you name the countries that span now what was once the Mayan culture?
