Viva Mexico!
Hale, Judy; Hawkes, Brent
This curriculum presentation outlines how to celebrate five Mexican holidays in the classroom: Cinco de Mayo, Dia de los Muertos, Fiesta, Las Posados, and Three Kings Day. The goal is to help children learn through hands-on activities and real-life experiences. The format for each holiday celebration includes a brief history with ideas for integrating language, lifestyles, foods, and/or crafts. Directions and patterns for the activities are included, with illustrations. Also provided are a list of materials needed, instructions, food recipes, and additional activities that involve research by the children; comparison with North American holiday traditions; and how to create paper masks, flowers, and a pinata.
