Exploring Mardi Gras in the classroom gives students the opportunity to learn about traditions and cultural diversity. Use these vocabulary cards in centers and activities as you celebrate this historically significant tradition.
Included are the words; Mask, crown, hat, necklace, streamers, confetti, Fleur de Lis, costume, Mardi Gras, and Pazcki. Pazckis are a local Fat Tuesday tradition with Polish origin that my students love to be able to sample in the classroom. If this is not a tradition that is part of your regional celebration feel free to leave this card out, or find some for your class to sample together for the first time!
Use these vocabulary cards to introduce your students to new words. These are perfect for writing centers and activities.
This set also includes a set of cards that has pictures and spaces for children to practice spelling the vocabulary words with letter tiles. You could also use the second set to have each child write in the words themselves to create their own vocabulary card set.
