This is a great activity to get away from the typical Cinco de Mayo and other similar cultural activities that often become a bit stereotypical. The Yipao Parade is one of the most popular fiestas in Colombia but very little is known about it outside the country.
Create a colorful Yipao Parade in your Spanish classroom. This has been one of the best cultural activities that I have created. My students absolutely loved it and had sooooo much fun working and learning about this crazy but amazing Colombian fiesta!
This product provides you with:
+ A paper model Jeep to print, cut out and glue together.
+ Information, history and facts about the Yipao Parade
+ Video Links
+ Photos, and Ideas.
This project can last 2 to 3 days depending on how long your classes are.
