I have worked long and hard to find a comprehensive Mexican unit for first graders. I finally made my own after extensive research and much professional development. This is a child's COMPREHENSIVE cultural unit about Mexico, integrating literacy and social studies. The beginning of this unit focuses on the brief age-appropriate history of the Maya and the Aztecs. The rest of the unit focuses on the geography, the landforms, the celebrations, the food, and the homes of Mexican people. This unit focuses on the diversity of Mexican people who are part of Mexico today. There is a heavy emphasis on visuals for children in the younger grades. There is also a Mexican Book Review Template that can be used for the fiction read alouds. There is an extensive bibliography that accompanies the child's portion of this journal. This unit meets the literacy and social studies Common Core Standards.
