Mexican Activities

1. MULTIPLE SUBJECTS.....If you want to sort through a variety of ideas about Mexico to use in your class, Questconnect gives you a whole lot of material.

2. HISTORY.....Want to know more about the Aztecs? EDSITEment, a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities, could be what you are looking for. None of the activities include human sacrifice

3. HISTORY.....Now, if you prefer studying the Mayans, go to Teacher Vision.

4. DAY OF THE DEAD.....For back ground information on this holiday, check out Mommy Maestra. Then, check out the activity links. I really like the sugar skulls activity at Mexican Sugar Skull.com

5. IMMIGRATION....It may be hard to imagine leaving friends and family to move to another country. However, many Mexicans cross the Rio Grande every year. The National Center for History in the Schools has a wealth of information.

6. FACS....If reading, writing, and artistic creation isn't enough for you, how about food? There is so much good Mexican food. And, if you want to know how to make some yourself, DLTK's Growing Together may be just your meal ticket.
