Resources for Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 to October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month, so we’ve created a collection of activities and lessons to recognize and celebrate the history, contributions, and accomplishments of Latinx, Latina, Latino, and Hispanic individuals who have enriched the United States.

Below, you’ll find free, ready-to-teach lessons and activities made in partnership with Newsela, PBS NewsHour Classroom, and News-O-Matic, powered by Pear Deck.

Wonder Pack: Hispanic Heritage Month

In this Wonder Pack, students learn about some of the contributions of Latino Americans to the United States based on the series, “Latino Americans” from PBS. Four separate lessons are designed to engage learners in grades 4-12 in learning and discussion.



“Who I Am and Where I Come From”

In this lesson from News-O-Matic, students watch a video and read an article to learn about the importance of Hispanic Heritage Month. Reflection prompts ask students to think about and share what they heard.
