Celebrating Cinco de Mayo

You students can learn about other cultures and their celebrations. This post is filled with activities about Cinco de Mayo in Mexico.

Cinco de Mayo is celebrated on May 5th. In Texas, there are festivals all over the state. Cinco de Mayo marks the victory of the Mexican militia over the French Army in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is not Mexican Independence Day, which is September 16.



By celebrating Cinco de Mayo in your classrooms, students can learn about other cultures, especially our neighbors to the south. I have a few activities for you to do in your classrooms.

- Students can make their own sombrero cookies. 
Just make basic sugar cookies at home. Students can add frosting to the edges and center of the cookie. Add sprinkles and a gumdrop to the cookie. So easy... Click on the image for more ideas from The 36th Avenue Blog.


- Make Caracas - My friend Shelly with Appleastic has the precious freebie craft with informational text about Cinco de Mayo. Make sure to download this free product.

             

- Show a PowerPoint about Mexico and Cinco de Mayo. Then add additional activities that include Mexican words, mini-book and games.
