- 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.
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).
