The original Mexicolore team

What we offer to schools

As a team we offer school visits, videoconferencing sessions and teaching resources on the Aztecs/Mexica and on the Maya (KS2 History) and on the Spanish Conquest 1519-1535 (GCSE History).

Since 1980 we have used music, dance, drama, costumes, artefacts, crafts, slides and other media to bring Mexican history and culture alive to over 210,000 British school children.

Both our current team illustrated presentations on the Aztecs and on the Maya are a cross between an illustrated talk, workshop and full-scale theatrical performance. In a single morning the team bring a term’s study of the Aztecs or the Maya to life in a way no book or static exhibition possibly can.
