Product Description

  • Webquest (great for virtual learning) about “Unidad Panamericana.”  This comes with 4 versions and answer keys (English, Spanish, Easy, Hard).
  • Cultural Mural Project with Rubric
    • In large groups, students are assigned a cultural event/historical event to recreate in mural form. They must research the elements, people, and history of this topic and create different vignettes to tell a story. Students will assemble a large mural, write descriptions, and give an oral presentation.

  • Mexicanidad Symbols Project
    • Individually, students choose 3 symbols of Mexicanidad to draw and write about.  Then, they record a description of their artwork.  (Great for virtual learning). Rubric included.

Lesson Length

This will depend on how long your classes are.  At my school, blocks are 87 minutes.  We spent 6 blocks on this entire lesson unit.  (The Symbols of Mexicanidad project would add another few days.  In 2020, I chose to switch the mural project for the Mexicanidad project during virtual learning).
