Do you celebrate 5 de Mayo? What do you do? I guess you set a piñata, play the maracas and speak in spanish (LOL). Well actually, this day doesn´t celebrate the Mexico's Independence Day. There's a great story of courage and patriotism behind this hispanic festivity.
I'm not going to tell you, you will need to find about it. But it will be really fun, just download these Quest cards for free and start your search. This activity is great for groups work, there can be a contest in your classroom to celebrate this day. I recommend this resource for middle school levels. Enjoy!!
