Geography Monday: Guatemala



This weeks travels bring us to Guatemala.  

Here are some fun facts that we learned:

1.  Guatemala has the most population as the other countries of Central America.

2.  Over 50% of the Guatemalan population is of the Mayan empire.

Here are the books that we added to our study.  You can go  HERE  to see the other books that we add in.

Guatemala in Colors
by Ann Stalcup


We learned that the ruby-throated hummingbird winters in Guatemala.  We love our hummingbirds in the spring and summer around here.  So, we made this craft using foam.





For our meal from Guatemala, we made Pollo y Pina.  This is from the Eat Your Way Around the World book.  We put it in the crockpot for the day.



That night we made Arroz Guatemalteco to put our Polo y Pico over.  This recipe is found in the New Trip Around the World book.


Yummy!!




Stay tuned next week as we travel to Belize!





Blessings!!
