By: Laura, Steffi,&Aisha The Mayas Region The Mayas lived in South Mexico to Central America. Natural Resources Their natural resources are stone, corn, beans, and squash. Traditional Men's work The men planted & helped build new temples when
needed. Traditional Women's work. The women cooked, wove baskets and clothes and
also took care of the children. Food/Water Sources Peanuts were a very good source of protein for the
Mayas. They also ate a lot of beans & rice (white or
yellow). For a special treat (if they could find some)
they would have Cacao beans! Cacao beans for them
were very rare. So when they could find some, they
would be in heaven! Clothing The men wore loin cloths, shorts, some times vests( but not all the time), but NEVER long pants. The women wore long skirts with tunics, or a multicolored skirts
( or plaid, flower print, or a solid colored) with a solid
