Cinco de Mayo for Kids Can Be So Much Fun!
WooHoo! If you’d like to enjoy some awesome learning fun with your kids, Cinco de Mayo is a wonderful holiday to celebrate.
Cinco de Mayo (in Mexico, Spanish for the Fifth of May) has become a popular holiday (especially in the United States) that’s full of dancing, food, and music. Mexican culture and heritage is celebrated.
Although often associated with Mexican Independence, Cinco de Mayo is actually in recognition of Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
There’s really so much to learn when studying Cinco de Mayo! You and your kids can find out more about this Mexican battle, its role in Mexican independence, and overall Mexican culture.
This Unit Study is FULL of Cinco de Mayo Activities & Ideas
Take your Cinco de Mayo celebration to the next level with a unit study.
A unit study is an excellent way to explore a topic, theme, or fun day. With a unit study, you experience the theme with a variety of subjects. It’s an amazing way to really dig deep and learn in different ways.
After the massive success of our other holiday unit studies with my boys, I’m super pumped up to dive into learning more with my boys about Cinco de Mayo and why we even celebrate this holiday.
