This packet was designed as a themed choice board to be used in middle school. While I titled it "The Art of Central America" I also included a bit of Mexico in the projects as well.
The projects are designed so that students can work on the projects and learn what they want to about the various topics at their own pace. Teacher preparation and instruction is still need for students to be successful. Having choice in the art room or classroom emphasizes process over product, but it is always good to have a great piece of art in the end. I hope that you find these resources useful as you try your hand at allowing students to have choices in the art room.
