Cinco de Mayo Scavenger Hunt

CincoCinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. In the United States, many people use this occasion to honor Mexican contributions to our country. Take advantage of this holiday to have your students look around your community for examples of Mexican tradition and heritage. What better way to do that than with photographs!  In this scavenger hunt, students are challenged to capture three photographs depicting architecture, food, and arts/sports that have a direct connection to Mexican contributions.

Like this activity?  In our History Alive! The US Through Industrialism program we have a whole lesson built around Mexicano contributions to life in the Southwest.  See a teaser video of it HERE.

Have a great Cinco de Mayo everyone!Cinco de Mayo Scavenger Hunt
