This is an assignment I use to teach students about Mexico's Independence Day.
Included in this lesson:
1.5 page article about Mexico's Independence Day
Questions to answer after the reading
Timeline activity for students to create
Links to videos about Mexico's Independence Day
My lesson plans typically include:
Bellwork: When is Mexico's Independence Day (most kids guess cinco de mayo)
Reading of article (students do this independently and highlight anything they see important)
Answer questions about article (on own or with a partner)
Discuss answers with class
Have students create timeline of events leading up to Mexico's Independence Day
Compare/contrast their independence day and show videos
This activity is a nice filler if you need something for a substitute to complete. You will receive a PDF of the files as well as an editable Microsoft Word version.
