Celebrating Mardi Gras within the Classroom – Lesson Plans



A whole lot of Mardi Gras crafts and actions are nice for youthful youngsters, however they depart older youngsters out of the enjoyable. This post from Teach Hub talks concerning the historical past of Mardi Gras and gives academic concepts that older youngsters can do.

Sure there’s nonetheless masks adorning and crafts made with beads after all, but it surely additionally has some concepts for studying and shows (actual world and digital) that children can do to share what they’ve discovered.

My favourite concept is a little bit of a STEM extension: have youngsters or pairs of children make their very own Mardi Gras parade floats. I’d made this an upcycling problem the place college students have to make use of a shoebox and a bunch of random supplies (together with Mardi Gras beads, after all) to make their floats.

I’d love to listen to your concepts for doing Mardi Gras within the classroom with older youngsters!
