Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Today, many in the United States use this occasion to honor Mexican contributions to our country. For this activity, students are challenged to look for three examples of Mexican tradition and heritage within their own communities. They will then bring in the photographs of these influences to share with their classmates.
