We kicked off our Hola Mexico topic with the children listening to a traditional Mexican Mariachi band playing the 'Mexican Hat Song'. The children had to identify the different instruments used in the song and when and for how long each instrument was played. They then compiled a graphic score of the instruments in the song.
The next part of Mexico that the children researched, was Mexican Festivals and Celebrations. Some of these were Dia de la Inpendencia (Independence Day), Fiesta de Santa Cecilia (Festival of Saint Cecilia) and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
