Cinco de mayo FREEBIE!

In my experience, Cinco de mayo is often misunderstood by most. SO many people believe it is Mexico’s Independence Day, but it is NOOOTTTT! So, I have made it my mission to make sure my students leave with the knowledge of what the holiday actually means and how it is celebrated in Mexico and here in the United States.

Of course, before you venture into teaching it, you should learn about it if you don’t know, but HERE is the link to two Short Cartoon Stories you could do after discussing it with your class. HERE is a link to a great video I have used in the past too.

Of course, there is a LOT you could do to educate your students about this Mexican celebration! HERE is a link to a quick Webquest and Project Extension on my TpT store if that helps.

Happy Teaching!
