All Around This World map of Latin America featuring Honduras for kids

This week in music class All Around This World ventures to Honduras, a naturally beautiful and racially diverse Central American nation. We will admire Honduras for its musical and cultural traditions and hope to make it through class without a single abrupt transformation of power . . . 


START HERE:

OVERVIEW: “About 1500 years ago the land we now know as Honduras was the site of a major Mayan kingdom known as Xukpi(Copán) . . .”

MUSIC: “Honduran music varies from traditional salsa, merengue and reggaeton to distinctly Garinagu yet still quite diverse Punta . . .”

LANGUAGE: “Spanish is the most prominent language in Honduras but about 120,00 Hondurans speak Garifuna, a language of the Garinagu/Garifuna people who live along the Atlantic Coast in several Central American countries.

IMAGES: “Flickr’s ‘Honduras slideshow a lovely array featuring beautiful Central American scenery and beautiful people . . .”

WHEN YOU GO THERE: “Lonely Planet’s entry on Honduras extols the virtues of the country’s beaches, bird-watching and, of course, its howler monkeys.  (Who could say anything bad about  howler monkeys?)
