Mardi Gras Mambo!

Yay! I can hear the song in my head! I am not going to lie though I am apologizing in advance if this post makes no sense, because I am getting sick and took some medicine....feeling prettttty good! (makes me think of friends, prettyy pretttyy good!) I am also watching that right now as I type. 
Okay so yay new unit! So, if you're a reader you know I live in Louisiana and we love us some carnival time down here! It is a really big deal. So, to spread those good times to all and show some different cultures I made a mini-unit full of fun activities for your students to do! 
It includes: a how-to writing project on how- to make king cake, an ABC Mardi Gras word center, make your own mask, Mardi Gras math problems, two creative thinking sheets, and a letter to send home about students making their own floats.

And, if you can name the Mardi Gras ball I am attending for the second time this year I will give you a FREE copy! Guess away, and Laissez Bon Temps Rouler!

Is it the Spanish Town Mardi Gras Ball or the Krewes of Perseus Ball? It's fun to guess. Have fun!

I'll give you a hint! It is the biggest ball in New Orleans and Maroon 5 is the Grand Marshal!

Maroon 5?! Swoon!!! I'm so jealous.
I've never been to Loisianna, let alone Mardis GRAS. It's on my 'To Do' list.
Your unit looks great! I'll have to go check it out.
