In this curriculum, I have included many projects to get teachers, students, and families excited about exploring Mexico. Most of the activities and print outs have a Spanish and English version which makes this unit adaptable to most every educational setting from Home Schooling to Immersion programs to Social Studies courses and summer camps. You can incorporate pieces of the unit throughout the year, or you can do the entire unit all at once. The goal of this unit is to provide a starting place from which teachers, students, and families can further and more deeply explore the culture.
This unit covers:
The land, music, food, art, sayings, celebrations, the Aztecs, and the three gifts from Mexico. I have included activities that will come together at the end of the unit to make a book. Each section also includes additional extension activities and ideas.
