Big Idea – Why farming was so important to the Maya people and why they were so good at it.
Farming was really important to the Mayas. Most people grew their own crops in small fields.
Despite their size, these fields were used to grow many kinds of crops at the same time, such as maize, beans, squash and chilli. If farmers grew more than they could eat, they traded the leftovers in markets.
One reason the Mayas were so successful at farming was because they studied the stars and the weather. This meant they were able to create very detailed calendars which told them what time of year to plant crops and when they should harvest them.
