Cultural Learning Experience

Help me give my students crafting supplies for better understanding Hispanic culture and the Spanish language.

My Students

My students are a motivated group interested in the cultural practices of Spanish-speaking countries. They are middle schoolers who spend time after school in Spanish Club. They look for extra opportunities to learn.

Students will learn about Hispanic crafts, holidays, foods, and more.

My Project

These materials will be used by students in Spanish club and in Spanish class to enhance their understanding of Spanish language and Hispanic culture through experience.

Students will learn about Dia de los Muertos, Guatemalan Worry Dolls, Ojos de Dios, Mexican Flavors, and traditional games.

Some items will also enhance classroom learning with manipulatives. This is particularly true for time, which is a concept difficult for students to understand. For Dia de los Muertos, students will not only experience the tradition of face painting "calacas", but also will create "linternas" that are parts of traditional "altares".
