Explore Our World - Mexico

Rosie G.

I thought learning about Mexico would be fun during Cinco De Mayo while on lockdown with my kiddos.

In this lesson Children will “travel” to Mexico to experience the rich culture this country has to offer! Children get to create a passport, a coiled clay pot and a pinata.
