I have to admit it: Hispanic Heritage Month always inspires me. Every year, I discover new people or learn fascinating facts about the ones I already know, and their stories are remarkable. But they should be shared all year long, not just one month out of the year.
So I was motivated to create a new activity that can be used at any time. The Hispanics in History Fandex is my new favorite printable.
Once printed and cut out, these fact files may be used as individual bookmarks or a fandex. As bookmarks, your students can choose one and take turns presenting their figure to the class, or write a report. The fandex is awesome for literacy centers. Students can flip through it and select three figures they enjoyed learning about and use the worksheet to share what they've learned.
These fact files feature 36 historical figures:
Mario José Molina
Sammy Davis, Jr.
Miguel de Cervantes
Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz
Franklin Ramón Chang Díaz
Bernardo de Galvéz
Helen Rodríguez Trías
And the best part? It is available in English, Spanish, or both!!
