Fiestas Mexicanas

I spent this week teaching a series of lessons about Day of the Dead in Latin America to my heritage Spanish speakers.  It turned out to be a pretty good mini unit, I think. There is a lot of material, so I’ll have to put it in another post.  The reason for this post is to remind myself of a couple of sites about Mexican holidays that I came across and want to use later.

The first includes an audio version in addition to the reading.

The second is a website for children at http://www.peques.com.mx/calendario_escolar.htm

For the Dia de los Inocentes in Spain, here is a video showing how to make a muñeco to put on people’s backs.
