Cinco De Mayo Worksheets

What is Cinco De Mayo? The word Cinco de Mayo is Latin for the Fifth of May. It marks the victory of the Mexican Army from the French Empire during the Franco-Mexican War that was held in 1862. The battle was known as the Battle of Puebla. Under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza, the 5th of May marks the victory of the Mexicans. Annually, Cinco de Mayo is a popular holiday throughout Mexico. Even though the holiday took origins in Mexico, the celebrations have gone far beyond and are more popular in the USA, especially in the parts with large Mexican American population. The festival gained popularity in the USA through California, where festivities began in the year 1863. In Pueblo City, the event is welcomed with an art festival, a local cuisine festival, and re-enactments of the battle. This is a 150 year tradition. We made some work to help you incorporate this holiday in your classroom.
