Mayan Temples – Doves

Posted on by tates

Architecture and Engineering skills were put to the test this week as we planned, designed and constructed our own Mayan temples to scale. Computer lessons were used to digitally design the temples and then we worked in small groups to practise our sawing skills – first time with a saw for many and no fingers were lost! Precise measuring skills were also needed to ensure the temples were symmetrical. We then used scale to create a village around the temples. Everyone worked brilliantly together and we had a really fun and productive afternoon. Two days later and the temples are all still standing – success!
