This unit study contains a list of resources and activities for you to use in your studies. Choose those that will best suit your students, time, and learning environment. My hope is that you will enjoy the process of learning and not feel constricted by the timeline or activities. I do recommend that you read at least one book aloud together from each unit as it is something you can experience and enjoy together. Make changes as they suit your needs and enjoy your time learning together!

If you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa . . . oh, boy. You're in red-hot trouble.
Living in... Mexico by Chloe Perkins Available on Youtube
Mexico is a country filled with beautiful art, incredible ancient ruins, and beaches, rainforests, and deserts! Have you ever wondered what Mexico is like? Read along to find out!
A game all about melting ice with a dragon's fire breath to get all the gems frozen inside. It is a perfect tie in with Dragon's Love Tacos as it gives the dragons something to do with their flaming snouts.
