Living in Texas, we have many families from Mexico who still celebrate this holiday. Enjoy Mexico Independence Day with your students. This is a great way to learn about different cultures around the world. I've provided a simple PowerPoint to explain how Mexico gained their independence along with some fun activities and websites.
Make sure to drop by my store to see other products I have about Mexico and other countries around the world.
Mexican treats and snacks kids enjoy.
Cinnamon Tortilla Treat
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a bowl. Melt butter and brush one side of the tortilla. Sprinkle the sugar mixture on the buttered side. Roll up the tortilla. Brush butter on the other side as you roll. Sprinkle more sugar mixture on the rolled up tortilla. Place on cookie sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for 5 minutes. The tortilla should be crispy brown. If not, cook for a minute or so longer.
This is delicious served with Mexican hot chocolate!
