Product Description
This BreakoutEDU game is designed to give students a general understanding of Cinco de Mayo and why and how it is celebrated. It can be used in any level Spanish classroom as it has many language supports included (pictures, vocabulary, etc.). Similar to an escape room, a breakout box activity encourages collaboration and team work as students work together to solve puzzles to achieve the final goal of opening a box with a bunch of locks on it!

You can do this activity even if you don't have breakout boxes - just print the activities and give them to the students as they solve each of the puzzles! Have students write their answers on the answer sheet and show the answers after they solve each clue in order to receive the next one.

You have been invited to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Puebla, Mexico which is where the famous battle on this date took place! You and your students must solve the clues in order to get to the parade on time and celebrate!

Activities include:
-Cloze activity with the Mexican national anthem
-Crossword puzzle based on the history of Cinco de Mayo
-An invitation to the Cinco de Mayo celebration in Puebla
-Ways 5 de Mayo is celebrated nowadays
-Some history about salsa ingredients
-An infographic about common misconceptions

Teachers will need 5 locks (4-digit lock, 3-digit lock, word lock, directional/color lock, key lock), a hasp, a black light flashlight, a BreakoutEDU box or something similar for each group of students. Teachers will also need an invisible pen.

Instructions, checklist of items to print, activities and answer key included.

Let's get to the celebration!
