Happy Cinco de Mayo! Did you celebrate with your students today? Since we have a high percentage of Hispanic students and I have a Hispanic teacher’s aide with LOTS of artifacts…we had a GREAT fiesta today!
We started by learning about the Mexican culture and the significance of Cinco de Mayo. My instructional assistant had LOTS of awesome artifacts to pass around and show the kids!
After the presentation, the students created a Venn diagram comparing Mexico with the United States.
Do you have a Chipotle or any other Mexican restaurant in the town where you teach? If so, call and ask the manager if they can donate some tacos for your class. Or, ask if they are able to provide a discount for your class! You can also ask the parents to donate some taco ingredients!
