Resources for Celebrating Mexico's Independence Day

¡Viva Mexico! ¡Viva!

We've got a whole week coming up dedicated just to Mexico, so I'm going to just focus on a few of the great resources for learning about Mexico's Independence Day (Yes! It's today! No! It's not cinco de mayo! But you already knew that, no?) To learn more about Mexico or other Latin American countries, be sure to check out my Lesson Plans and Activities for Hispanic Heritage Month.

First off, you can find most of these and more on my Pinterest board, Mexico Independence. But my favorite items include...

Websites for learning about Mexico's Independence Day

  • This free ebook of El Grito, written as a song, from There's not really a lot of stuff out there for kids about El Grito, so enjoy!

  • BrainPopJr. has a free page dedicated to Mexico. It includes a nice little write up about the country, just hitting a few of the highlights, a game, a joke, vocabulary, drawing and writing activities, etc. The best part may be the great animated video in English introducing Mexico.




Here are some child-friendly videos in English to watch with your students.
