Our newest expansion pack explores some major themes regarding Mexico and the United States. Much of the Southeastern United States was a part of Mexico before the Mexican American war and today the countries overlap in many ways. Our expansion pack looks at indigenous people (prior to the formation of either country), the Mexican American war, famous artists (Romare Bearden and Diego Rivera) and immigration today.

This pack is perfect for an expat student from the United States living in Mexico or vice versa. Each pack includes books and a directly mailed activity packet that asks the student to review, reflect, make connections, and analyze current situations.

We also suggest that students visit famous historical sites including Teotihuacan, the Alamo, the Anthropology museum (Mexico) and the Native American museum (U.S.). If visits in person are not possible, we hope students will be able to explore the sites online.

The packet can be ordered separately or with an existing grade level American-History-in-a-Box. Orders are reimbursable for some expat families. Email us for the Reimbursement Request Form.
