As you study our neighbor to the South, Mexico, have your students complete this scrapbook activity. Students will draw a picture and write a sentence for each section including landforms, water, climate, culture, government, and money. Includes a 4-page scrapbook activity with grading rubric.
This is an activity that goes along with my resource, "Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South," which is a 10-page packet that can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about Mexico. In the "Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South" packet, your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, government, money and culture of Mexico. This Mexico Scrapbook is to be used as they read the "Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South" packet. Students will draw a picture and write a sentence for each section of the reading.
While these materials were written to correspond to Florida's Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for 3rd grade Social Studies when I couldn't find anything else appropriate for my students, "Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South" is also perfect for 4th, 5th, or 6th graders studying the countries of North America.
Make your study of Mexico complete. See my other listings for a quiz, and a fun "scrapbook" activity that correlate with the information in "Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South."
