Hispanic Heritage Month

Leave a Comment
This week, our class celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month with a little "trip" to some Hispanic countries. I found this fabulous resource from First Grade A to Z to guide our studies.

We started by setting up our passports, then heading to Mexico. 

There, we made the Mexican flag with torn paper. 

Then, we headed to Peru to make ruins out of marshmallows.

After lunch, we took off to Brazil and crafted our own Carnival floats out of milk cartons. I gave them construction paper, toilet paper rolls, Easter grass, and pipe cleaners and said go for it. They were busy (and quiet!) for a solid hour.

This is a fire breathing dragon. Can you tell?

At the end of the day, we went to Argentina and learned about gauchos (Argentinian cowboys). I gave them the choice of coloring the cowboy or sugar skulls. I didn't get a picture of any of this :( but they were loving every minute of it.

If you're needing a resource for Hispanic Heritage month, check this one out. It's fabulous!
