What educators are saying

This was such a fun and engaging project for my students. I thoroughly enjoyed pooling additional resources related to this topic.
My students LOVED this activity! I had a desfile and students voted on their favorite decorated yip and the best yipao!


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.

One more thing:

I've used this activity with 4th and 5th grade but it has worked best for me with 6th grade and up...
