Fraser University Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology in Burnaby, British Columbia. While Canada may not
be the first place a teacher would look
for Latin American resources, growing
cultural diversity in many areas of the
world make sites like ¡Hola Canada!
The strength of this website lies
in its collection of online videos and
accompanying lesson plans that can
be found under “Educator Resources.”
Seventeen short, informative videos
are designed for classroom use and
cover a variety of subjects, including bloodletting, backstrap weaving,
murals, music and dance, the Day of
the Dead, the various cultures of Latin
America, and archaeological sites. The
fourteen accompanying PDF lesson
plans may be printed or downloaded.
“Artifacts” allows a search of the
collection by object name, culture,
country, material, subject, and time
period, while “Featured Artifacts”
spotlights forty selected objects.
