Cinco de Mayo - Wrap Activity


Wrap Activity

Hands-on activities make learning fun for students. Don't forget to practice good sanitation and safety!

For this activity you will need:

  • Tortillas: corn, whole wheat, tomato, herb (one per student)
  • Shredded cheese: cheddar, mozzarella, Swiss, American (about 1oz or slice/student)
  • Fresh vegetables: shredded lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, green pepper (1 Tbls/student)
  • Canned Beans: refried beans, black beans, kidney beans (2 Tbls/student)
  • Meat: (cooked, shredded or sliced) chicken, ham, beef, turkey (1 oz or slice/student)
  • Prepared Salsa (1 Tbls/student)
  • Paper plates
  • Plastic spoons for serving ingredients

Have students wash their hands, tables, and all surfaces that food will come in contact with.

  • Place individual ingredients on plates, along with a serving spoon.
  • Assemble the plates on a table, buffet style.
  • Let students choose their own fillings. Have them place a small amount of the ingredients in a tortilla to make their wrap. Be sure to instruct them to place the ingredients near the edge of one side of the tortilla.
  • Roll it up when all the desired fillings have been added.
  • Do not let them use too much or too many ingredients. If the tortilla is too full, it will not roll.
