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.

September 15- October 15 Hispanic Heritage Month
