Mexican Independence Day and Hispanic Heritage Month

I’m always a little surprised by how many times my posts on Mexican Independence Day are accessed in comparison to my posts about Hispanic Heritage Month. Did you know that Mexico is just one of seven Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America that celebrates its independence between September 15 and October 15, the official dates of the Mes de la hispanidad or Mes de la herencia in the US? So while you plan your lessons for the upcoming weeks, keep in mind that this is a GREAT time of the year to learn about many different Latin American countries and the people that have that Spanish-speaking blood running through their veins! Here are some lesson plans, readings, and activities that I’ve developed over the years to use during this month:
