I have started thinking about extra credit projects for Cinco de Mayo. I have this one that I found on Pinterest,  http://hideousdreadfulstinky.com/2013/04/mini-pinata-tutorial-cinco-de-mayo-dancing-girls.html. If you choose to make this, you need to make three and they are due by Friday, May 2, 2014. You will receive 15 extra participation points for making all three. This is an all or nothing bonus.

Paper tissue flowers are extremely popular in Mexico. Follow the directions for these giant paper flowers to receive 15 extra participation points for FIVE of them.  http://www.auntpeaches.com/2012/04/friday-flowers-fiesta-flowers.html.  These are also due on Friday, May 2, 2014. This is an all or nothing bonus.

If you're really artsty-craftsy try making these señorita dolls for 25 extra participation points for FIVE of them.  http://dennasideas.com/tag/free-fiesta-printables/. These are also due on Friday, May 2, 2014. This is an all or nothing bonus.

For those who work better with technology, create an INFOGRAPHIC, a VIDEO REENACTMENT or a MENTAL MAP about Cinco de mayo. Include the history, why it is important, who was involved, when did this happen, why is it still celebrated, what country celebrates Cinco de mayo more than all others and what are the activities during the celebration. Also, include the food that is popular for this celebration. Talk about any special clothing that is worn or dances/songs that are performed. Be all inclusive with the information. People want to know it all.  Whichever of these three projects you decide to do will be worth 30 extra participation points. DUE DATE: Friday, May 2, 2014. Please remember to site your sources. :)
