This supplement will give students a new understanding of how Hispanic Americans may be people of different races and traditions yet they change and enrich any land in which they choose to live.

Sample Newspaper Activity
There’s a saying in real estate that the three most important things about a property are location, location and location. The location of Panama has been a key factor in the country throughout its history. In teams or alone, find a story in the newspaper about a country other than the United States. Look up the location of the country using an atlas or the Internet. Write a paragraph describing how location affects the well-being of the country you chose. Did it play a role in why the country is in the news?
