Overview: As Hispanics have been adding to America's culture, they have also protected their own separate culture. It is this culture that you are to research. As you research and read, you are to create an ABC book of the Hispanic culture. ABC books are of a wide variety. Sometimes they illustrate alliteration (Alex ate an apple.), sometimes they teach categories (Animals- aardvark, bear, cat, dog, etc.), sometimes they are humorous, and sometimes they can be tools for teaching (An ABC Book of Our Hispanic Culture).
