Title: Making a Vase
Background: We have been looking and studying some representative Maya artifacts that have survived the passing of time. Among these artifacts we have seen many samples of vessels with different shapes and sizes and we have discussed how they were made, the materials, and some of their possible uses.
Task: You will create your own vessel that describes a significant event, or events, of your life for future generations to learn about you. You have to include some writing as well as a picture that talks about you.
Purpose: To describe signifcant life events.
Procedure: Think abou something that tells other people something about you. This maybe something you like alot, you are very good at, or tells other people about you. Think of the purpose of the vessel or vase. What is it going to be used for? Write it down.
Draw a picture of the shape that is going to have.
What are you going to include in the outside of the vessel that says something about you? Write it down.
Choose from the different hieroglyphics that we have study those that you are going to add. Where do they go in the vessel?
