Mayan Panels – level 1

01-08-2022 15:00

This news is about history. Experts find three Mayan panels. They find them in Guatemala. The panels are between 1,300 and 1,400 years old.

The panels have script on them. The script is in good condition. It gives us information. It talks about a Mayan man. This man becomes a king.

Experts say that the panels are very important. One Mayan calendar is also important. It ends in 2012. Luckily, the world did not end in 2012.

Difficult words: panel (a flat thing people write on or put art on), script (writing), luckily (it is good that something happened or did not happen).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
