This resource will help your novice level (late level 1 or level 2) students learn about Cinco de Mayo IN SPANISH. Don't feel you must resort to English to teach culture or history! This reading is very comprehensible with lots of cognates and simple sentences.
In this packet you will receive:
*A two-page comprehensible Spanish reading about the history of Cinco de Mayo, the way it is celebrated today, and an emphasis that it is NOT Mexico's independence day!
*Suggestions for 2 videos you might show your students. One is a modern song about Cinco de Mayo, and the other is an interview in which a popular band from Mexico is asked trivia questions about Cinco de Mayo. Your students should know some of the answers after completing the reading!
*A 10-clue crossword puzzle based on the reading. This could be used a homework, a quiz, or a practice activity.
*The reading as an illustrated projectable slideshow.
