Part four of our free lesson plans teaches your student about the country of Mexico, the principle of fairness in business, and introduces the fair-trade industry. They also give you the opportunity to teach your children about geography, reading, and writing. The spiritual emphasis for this set of free lesson plans is prayer.
Supplement your own homeschool curriculum with additional information included in these free lesson plans about the country of Mexico, including featured stories from individuals living in the Central American country, its history, culture, and religion.
