Let’s explore the ancient world. We’ve chosen folk tales, myths, biographies, and documentaries from a few of the many areas of Latin America, and we have maps for you to download and trace or fill in also.
Map Study is very simple. Print a map. Label what you can from memory. Look up three-five more things and add them. Look over your labeled map for a minute or two each day, but only add to it once or twice a week. Soon you’ll know far more about the area you are studying than you did before

We’ve consulted several book lists for books about the many different countries and peoples of Latin America. But if we included even one story from each people group, this list would be overwhelming. So here are many options, as well as the book lists we consulted.
