We started off by learning about the holiday itself, and finding out more about why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. The kids learned about symbols that remind us of the holiday, and colored pictures of the symbols. We put the symbols on a circle map!
After we finished our circle map, we made sombreros! My co-worker had the cute idea of gluing paper cups onto paper plates and decorating them with cotton balls to make sombreros. The kids loved this, and tried to balance them on their head all day!!
