Fifth-grade students in Diana Lanze’s class at Mills Pond Elementary School spent May 21 engaged in different activities about Mexico. The students analyzed a map of Mexico to answer questions about its geography. They also read a menu from local restaurant Cabo Fresh to solve real-world math problems involving calculating a subtotal, tip and tax. The students read an article and answered questions about border issues between the United States and Mexico. The class sampled empanadas, churros, chips, salsa and guacamole. Lastly, they compared and contrasted city life vs. rural life in Mexico.
