North America Lesson Plans and Resources

North America Lesson Plans and Resources
Our first stop in our study of North America was Mexico. Mexico is three times the size of Texas and is south of the United States. The Rio Grande, the longest river in Mexico, forms the border between the US and Mexico. Mexico has a variety of plant and animal life and also a variety of environments: desert, rainforest, wetlands, and mountains. Most of the country’s population are mestizos, people of mixed Spanish and Indian origins. During our studies we learned about the history of Mexico, tried to speak a little Spanish, did a little online sightseeing, and finished up with a yummy recipe {and one we’ll have to make again!!}. If you'd like to see a more detailed blog post with day-by-day plans and additional links/resources for our two-week study, here is the link: Off We Go to Mexico ~ Unit Study and Lesson Plans
