Instructions for a variety of activities relating to Mexican culture are provided, with brief descriptive and historical notes on Mexican heritage. Arts and crafts from western, central, and southern Mexico are represented as well as many which are common to all of Mexico. Some of the activities included are weaving, chewing gum sculpture, paper flowers, pottery making, masks, tin art, sugar art, sewing, and cooking. Some additional areas covered are: (1) miniatures and other toys; (2) processes involved when making or using items such as clay pottery, baker's clay, bread sculpture, papier mache, rice, and embroidery; (3) puppets, masks, murals, and culture maps; (4) short cuts and substitutes in preparing materials and projects; (5) items needed for classroom cooking; (6) U.S. equivalents for Mexican cooking implements; (7) a glossary of required food items; and (8) recipes. "There" is used in the text to indicate methods and materials used in Mexico, and "here" for comparative activities for the U.S. classroom. Suggested resources and a 36-item bibliography are included. (JW)
