Teach your students the story and significance behind the Mexican flag in this reading lesson on Hispanic culture.

Included in this lesson is a reading in English about the history and symbolism of the Mexican flag, comprehension questions, and coloring sheets of both the Mexican flag and a detailed coloring sheet of the emblem in the middle of the flag.

This English language mini-lesson can be adjusted for different grade levels:

* Younger grades (preK-3) can color the coloring sheet of the Mexican flag, as well as color an additional coloring sheet of the emblem in the middle of the flag.

* Teachers can read the story of the Mexican flag aloud to the younger grades.

* Grades 4+ will read the story of the Mexican flag and learn the significance of the colors and the history of the emblem (in English). Students will answer comprehension questions, and complete a template to draw their own Mexican flag and emblem.

This mini-lesson can be used in social studies classes, in a unit on Mexico, during International Week, or for a cultural lesson in Spanish class. Because students can work independently on the worksheet, teachers may include this in their emergency substitute plans as well.

Learning about the Mexican flag can happen any time of year, but here are some important dates to keep in mind:

September 15- October 15 Hispanic Heritage Month

Sept 16: Mexican Independence Day

February 24th: Flag Day in Mexico

May 5: Cinco de mayo, commonly celebrated in the US
