Moving Beyond the Page 6-8 – Concept 3, Unit 2, Lesson 2: Traditions
Today we continued to learn about the traditions of people in the community. We studied about the 5 de Mayo celebration and how important it is for Mexican Americans. We read about it online and watch a video on youtube about 5 de Mayo.
We then learned about Kwanzaa and what this holiday symbolizes today to African Americans. AA made a very pretty Kwanzaa placemat with bright colors and patterns.
We learned about the Chinese New Year and the foods that have special meanings during this traditional celebration. We revisited our own western celebration of Christmas and our own favorite holidays.
