What educators are saying

I LOVE THIS RESOURCE!!! Teaching students about Mexico is my favorite and this activity was so much fun!
This is a great supplemental resource to use with my students as they research about Mexico during their Social Studies unit.


Imagine your class is going on a trip to Mexico! This unit includes reading passages about the history, animals, food, holidays, and famous landmarks. It also has lots of fun hands-on activities, country photo posters, flip book, and a sea turtle craft. This unit has it all!

There is information about:

✔All About Mexico

✔Amazing Animals of Mexico

✔Holidays of Mexico

✔Tasty Mexican Foods

✔Famous Landmarks: Chichen Itza

✔Symbols of Mexico

What’s Inside:

✔Green Sea Turtles Close-up

This unit includes:

Photo Posters:

You can use the five colorful vocabulary posters with the real-life photo posters as an introduction to the unit. These posters make an excellent bulletin board display in a snap!


Next, have students read the passages all about Mexico. THERE ARE TWO VERSIONS OF INFORMATIONAL ARTICLES: One has real-life photographs, and the other has scenes for students to color, depending on the needs of your students. After reading the passages, have students complete the suitcase organizer and other related activities. There are two versions, one with clip art and one without it. These work well in centers, learning stations, and group work.


There are many activities for students to complete to show what they know:

✔Suitcase Organizers

✔Chichén Itzá Research Organizer

✔Questions about Mexico

✔Map of Mexico CRQ

✔Just the Facts Acrostic Chart

✔Symbols of Mexico

✔I Can Speak Spanish
