This pdf is a basic lesson plan for Cinco de Mayo. Embedded is a link to a short video as well as a text in Spanish about the History of 5 de mayo. Have the students read the text in groups, first, then review key facts with students using the text within the pdf. I like to do this activity with food, as I invite students to bring in a typical Mexican dish to share with the class on this day. Use sign-up genius to make sure you don't get a lot of duplicate food items. Qué viva México.
