Students will choose one question or activity from each Tic-Tac-Toe square to form a Tic-Tac-Toe horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

Sample Questions:

°What is NAFTA? How has it affected the people of Mexico? Do you think NAFTA has been good or bad for the people in border cities of the United States? Explain your answer.

°Even before Europeans “discovered” the new world there were advanced civilizations in the Americas: Incas, Olmecs, Mayas, and Aztecs. List the cultural characteristics of each, what they are famous for, and how they still influence the world today.

° Create a Venn diagram comparing Central America and the West Indies.

° Create a stamp reflecting the blend of culture in Central America (Native American, African, and European)

° What challenges does Mexico face today as a result of their expanding population? Propose a solution to one of the challenges they face.

Note: This is a higher-level thinking activity which requires students to not only research the answers to the questions, but compare and contrast, create, explain, etc.
