Cinco de Mayo Taco Craft

Here’s a fun build-a-taco craft for Cinco de Mayo. Just print on colored paper or let students color them in. I have included eyes for fun but your students can add different mouth expressions. These would look very cute on your bulletin board. You can teach them the Spanish words of each ingredient.

Taco is taco.

Meat is carne.

Lettuce is lechuga.

Cheese is queso.

Tomato is tomate.

Tortilla is tortilla.

Hope you like it! Here’s a sample video of this craft.
