Cinco de Mayo marks the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, when against overwhelming odds, the Mexican Army defeated French forces in 1862.
While Cinco de Mayo has been heavily commercialized with stereotypical props, we still can bring this holiday to our Spanish classes by celebrating Mexican culture.
If you decide that Cinco de Mayo is a good fit for your curriculum, this guide will help you discover vocabulary and cultural materials.
The Speaking Latinos’ Cinco de Mayo Class Guide helps middle and high school Spanish teachers discover vocabulary and Mexican culture activities they can use in class. These ready-made materials reduce prep and planning time.
This Spanish class guide features vocabulary printables, song cloze, and scaffolded activities for students of all levels.
