Many classroom teachers tell me that they celebrate the arrival of spring with a festival on the 5th of May. I have a very simple Web page with a few links to help them plan their curriculum activities and lessons.
MEXonline tells us that this traditional day of celebration in Mexico, "commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862." To celebrate Jessica Shaw gives us a lesson plan designed for grades 3 and 4. Chocolate was highly prized in Mexican history and so that is how I am planning to participate in this historical celebration.
