    This resource is filled with numerous activities/books/graphics for educators who seek different methods of instruction to educate students during Hispanic Heritage month. It highlights one of my favorite children’s picture books- ‘F is for Fiesta,’ an outline for a heritage trifold presentation, treats teachers can put together for students during September, and a number of other Hispanic Heritage resources for educators who are interested in Hispanic Heritage beyond the month of September.

    Simple and free activity for young children that involves learning some of the different flags which represent Hispanic culture while simultaneously teaching students colors and how to write/pronounce them using Spanish language. This free printable was published on the Time For Kids magazine in part of an ongoing Hispanic Heritage series of activities.

    A lesson plan published by the Arts Edge initiative at the Kennedy Center which compares the cultural and artistic traditions of the U.S. celebration of Halloween and the Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead. This lesson plan is appropriate for children in grades K-4 and covers topics under the Language Arts, World Languages, and History subjects. Students are expected to develop arts literacies, make art and global connections.
