Diverse and culturally rich, Latin America embraces influences from Europe, Africa, and Asia, as well as a vast array of indigenous Indians. Each country has its own special identity and history. Introduce young people to this ever-fascinating and complex region, and spur their creativity with projects based on Latino art and archeology. Filled with lively color photos that present the paintings and the peoples, the marketplaces and the celebrations, the landscapes and the architecture of countries from Mexico down to Chile, this guide will fire youngsters' imaginations. Students can coil a vessel (just like the Nazca potters), build their own Mayan temple from clay, paint marvelous masks on paper bags - and more!
