Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo, a holiday widely celebrated in parts of Mexico and the US. With this week’s set of CERCA Slides, you and your students can explore the origins and evolution of this tradition.

Questions —“When did Cinco de Mayo start, and why do people celebrate it?” and “How has the holiday been affected by commercialization?”— will get your students thinking about the meaning of commemorations and celebrations in all of the communities to which we belong.
