Mexico (Estados Unidos Mexicanos)

In the past we’ve studied Mexico during the week of Cinco de Mayo.   [Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for “fifth of May”) is a celebration held on 5 May.  In the state of Puebla, the holiday is called El Día de la Batalla de Puebla(English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).  The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín.]  —  from Wikipedia

This year, we’ll be starting a two-week tour of  Mexico during the week of their Independence day, September 16.

We’ll explore the heritage, and food traditions of Mexico and we’ll learn about how the people of Mexico celebrate their day of independence.  Our meal for the week will be a simple but very tasty recipe called Lime Ciilantro Pork Tacos.  We made this last year and it was very well received.  Our meal for the second week will be a recipe we’ve never tried before, but hope will be very good, called Enchiladas Verde.  The flag below is the link to teacher materials and recipes.
