Dig like a Mayan
Dig-It’s Mayan Mysteries is a great way to teach fifth-through-ninth graders about archeology and the lost Mayan Empire. Structured like a puzzle, students unearth details of the lost civilization and put the pieces together as a group or on their own. There are games, comic books and animated sequences to help the kids with geographical concepts, reading comprehension, science and math skills. The game has a built-in Teacher Management System to track how each kid is doing. It costs $22 for the PC, $10 for an iPad or $300 for a classroom license that covers up to 30-students.
