"Hola" from Mexico!

For easy access to my blog post, Subscribe or find me on Facebook!

This week in our Expedition Earth studies we "travelled" to Mexico.  They started out stamping their passports and finding the country on the map!

One of their favorite parts of the week, dancing!

They completed their mapping and flag pages.

Put together their animal mini books and added animal cards to wall classification chart.

Added the country label to the continents wall poster.

Colored their paper dolls for Mexico.

And since we were finishing up this continent, they did a continents review page.

Other things we did this week:
  • Prayed for the people in Mexico
  • Read about a child from Mexico
  • Read about the Chiapas in our "Bold Believers" download from Kids of courage.
  • Watched a YouTube video about persecuted Christians in Chiapas, Mexico
  • Watched  YouTube video about Chichen Itza
  • Watched a YouTube video about Tenochtitlan
  • Stamped passports with exit date
  • Went on a field trip to see the play "Narnia"
  • Went on a field trip to G6 airpark

Gracias for visiting this page!  Our next stop is Brazil, South America!!

  1. Just read this with my kiddos and they LOVED the video of your girls dancing!! And then they said "I wish we were doing school with them." =) So obviously it looks like fun! (Are the songs from Wee Sing Around the World?)
