Mini-Unit Topic: Hispanic Cultures

Fifth graders focus on customs and celebrations of a particular Hispanic culture, and also participate in a constructivist science lesson where they try to re-create the atmosphere of a South American rain forest. Students also make a papier-mâché piñata and understand the uses for the piñata in Hispanic culture by making a piñata, listening to a story of how it is used in the Mexican National celebration called the Posada, and discussing other uses of the piñata.
