  • My students loved learning about cascarones and the tradition behind them in the Latin American countries. We loved the glyph, too! We didn't have the resources to make them in class, so I ordered some and we celebrated and took them outside to break them over each other's heads and spread some good luck.

  • Did this as part of a lesson over multiple days where we learned abut Cascarones and then actually went outside and broke cascarones over our heads. So much fun! The students really enjoyed it!
