Join the Global Adventure with Yianna and Helios!I found a way to engage my students' curiosity of the world by combining art, history and just a bit of mystery. I created the story of two 3rd grade kids who travel the world and send our art room messages and artifacts from different places around the world. This power point targets the geography, history, culture and art of Mexico, creating a complete package for your students. Along with a series of geographical images, printables are available for your students' deeper investigation of Mexico.
The lesson encourages a discussion and study of the celebration, Dia de los Muertos, culminating with a project of “sugar” skulls (made with clay).

Take a peek and set your students on a great global adventure.
