Cinco de Mayo is a day honoring a Mexican military victory over French forces in 1862. You can learn more about Mexico and this event in GoWYLD.net.
CultureGrams is a great resource for discovering Mexico. Although it does not talk specifically about about Cinco de Mayo, mostly celebrated in Puebla, you will find beautiful photos, videos, and information about holidays, language, religion, greetings, and so much more. The main page for each country includes maps, an infographic, the country anthem, the flag, and recipes. Book clubs will love CultureGrams for background information and food!
Use both the World edition and the Kids edition, as they each showcase different information. In the Kid’s edition you will find a history timeline, Life as a Kid, Games & Sports, and “Can you Say it?”
