Ancient Mayan Civilisation

School Trip Guide

The Maya, KS2 History


Uncover the wonders of The Maya with a fascinating school visit to Cadbury World, linked to the Key Stage 2 Ancient Civilisations curriculum.
Our interactive educational talk on The Maya enhances learning outside of the classroom as your pupils discover this fascinating ancient civilisation. The talk complements a tour of Cadbury World, which features the Mayan peoples’ involvement in the early history of cocoa in c. AD 900.
The Maya Educational Talk
Bring your topic to life with our interactive curriculum-linked talk, presented in our themed education rooms by our dedicated team. We will introduce the great city of Chichen Itza and discover the Mayan myths and legends that claimed how humans were created. Explore our life-size replica of the Mayan codex stretching over 6 metres long and understand their fascinating counting system.
See our real cocoa pods filled with the cocoa beans that were so valuable to Mayans in c. AD 900, and the wooden whisk they used to make their favourite chocolate drink. Lucky pupils can even have the chance to dress as a Mayan!
We find out if The Maya played possibly the first team sport in human history, connecting and contrasting their lives to ours today.
The presentation also features video and audio to enhance your experience, and is available for either individual or multiple classes of up to 110 students.
