Exploring Countries and Cultures week 5 - Mexico

 Well the passports arrived and so it's a go, we boarded a plane and headed to Mexico
The girls packed backpacks for a carry-on.  As their flight attendant, I served a mid flight beverage and snack, but was begged for a meal, I told them that you only get a snack, it's not first class and then they begged to be in first class.  They ate lunch on their airplane trays.
 a little introduction to Mexico
 #1 read this book and then drew a picture of the volcano.
 More geography vocabulary cards

 The start of our pinata, thank God for good weather to work on this outside.
a little mexican food from Burrachos - my favorite!

Well that was our week, we learned about Harriet Tubman in Hero Tales and have been playing the geography game, wow I can't believe how much I don't know.  We each have a map of North America and draw cards with country names on it and then have to place a marker on the country, trying to get more correct than the other player.  I bet by the end of next week though, we will both be able to label a map of North America Correctly.
