I have shown the PPT to 8th grade Spanish 1 and ninth/tenth grade Spanish 2 students. They learned a lot, and were inspired to ask other questions/make commentary as we viewed. There were some typos on the PPT prior to the update, so I hope they have been edited. One of my students thought that the money I paid for the PPT was a rip-off, but, I believe otherwise. One shouldn't necessarily re-invent the proverbial wheel, and, sometimes, time just isn't available to make "cool stuff" like this PPT. I , for one, am not creative in this way. Thank you for your work.

This is a brief but informative powerpoint. Good for middle schoolers with short attention spans (I take about 5 minutes to go over it). I use this powerpoint along with a Cinco de Mayo video and a word search with related vocabulary and the class goes off very well with an overall basic understanding of the holiday. I teach exploratory Spanish, so this is exactly the type of understanding I hope to achieve. Thank you!
On  April 30, 2009Ms. Solis answered:
I experienced success in utilizing this Power Point during an all school assembly (K-8) as one of several activities. First, I asked students to guess what Cinco de Mayo was about... Then I showed the presentation, and elaborated as I went along. The Power Point provided the historical significance of the holiday which served as an excellent introduction for an Aztec Dance troupe I invited to perform for the school afterwards.
