Cultural Activities of Early Civilization The Olmec Civilization had a team sport (they where the first people to have team sports) where there was a rubber ball that they would bounce on body parts until someone scored a goal and winners got presents while losers died. The Mayans had their own calendar that ends in 2012 and a base 20 number system where.=1 -=5 and were the first people to recognize 0 as a number The Ancient Puebleons were a group of people who lived in rock houses that and made baskets strong enough to hold water. There were a big group of tribes who were mound builders like the Adena who used them for burial and went up to 90 feet high
FOOD OF EARLY CIVILIZATION The Olmec would farm their staple crops. They depended on rain for their crops. The Mayans farmed their crops. They also traded them for other goods. The Ancient Pueblanos grew maize, beans, and pumpkins. They would put their extra food in a wooven basket like a food storegde. They would use tough baskets for pots.
