Mexico! Learn about our neighbor to the south!
Includes a fantastic 10-page complex text to use when teaching social studies.
This is a complete unit for teaching about Mexico with informational text, anticipation guide with questions to guide their reading, a 30 question quiz with answer key, and a fun “scrapbook” activity with a grading rubric.
"Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South”
is a 10-page informational text packet that can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about Mexico. In this complex text, your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, government, money, and culture of Mexico.
While these materials were written to correspond to Florida's Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for 3rd grade Social Studies when I couldn't find anything else appropriate for my students, "Mexico: Our Neighbor to the South"
is also perfect for 4th, 5th, or 6th graders studying the countries of North America.
