Are you ready for an education vacation? Not a vacation from education, but an educational vacation, without ever leaving home!
Which country boasts jungles, volcanoes, and Mayan pyramids?
Studying a country is a great way to discover amazing animals and geographical features with your children. Here are a few of the things that they will explore with this study:
Mariachi bands often bring Mexico to mind, but what are they?
Exciting dances can be incredibly fun, and you may already know some of them.
X marks places on the map—some you will have heard about . . . others will be new finds!
Iguanas are often green, but how long are they?
Cinco de Mayo is a holiday in Mexico, but do you know why?
Old pyramids remain after the Mayan civilization—no need to go all the way to Egypt!
“Are the kids yelling to go somewhere fun, but there are no vacations or field trips on the horizon? Expedition Mexico may be just the answer. This 5-day unit study on Mexico will transport your family there as you explore the geography, culture, food, games, and much more about this country. The best part is that everything is here—you just Download N Go™ as it is aptly named… One of our favorite parts is that when the children are asked about the size of Mexico, its population, weather, etc. there is always space to compare information about our own country and community. This helped to bring all of the numbers and information into perspective for smaller children. The combination of written work, uses of literature and website information, and also hands-on projects ensure that there is something for everyone regardless of your child’s learning style. Visual learner? It’s in there. Auditory learner? It’s in there. Kinesthetic learner? It’s in there… Sounds like a win-win situation to me!”

“I have always dreamed of visiting Mexico, and Expedition Mexico has allowed me to take my children on a festive vacation where we have learned about the culture, history, and geography of this fascinating country. We have also learned new vocabulary words, poetry, and even a little Spanish! The book lists to enhance the study of Mexico are wonderful. There are also many great video links that my children enjoyed. They cannot wait to make a piñata. My son was very interested in the Mayan history, and my girls loved learning about the animals of Mexico! Now I have to convince them that we are not decorating the entire front yard with pink flamingos! The Download N Go™ Series keeps getting better and better. We cannot wait until our next unit study adventure.”

“Expedition Mexico is a fun-filled study that will take you and your children south of the border to learn about the United States’ closest southern neighbor. Learning the geography and history of Mexico is made fun with the games and interesting facts that abound… And learning has never been tastier. Along with taste testing many easy (and yummy) Mexican treats, we tested one of Mexico’s most delicious exports . . . chocolate!”
