Topic

In our topic, we are looking at Mexico!  As part of this topic, we will be focusing on The Maya - the indigenous people of Mexico.  We'd like you to create a radio interview with a Mayan Priest to explore their rituals, celebrations and any other interesting facts.  Before you plan your interview, you will need to conduct some research.  Then we'd like you to produce a transcript of the finished interview - it can be handwritten or typed.  You can even record yourself conducting the interview.  Why not involve a family member or do it all yourself and put on different voices for the interviewer and the priest!  We can't wait to hear them!
