Spanish in Color

Help me give my students color ink to create color pictures of different cultures, better images of festivals with a better lens, a bag to protect the lens, and paper to print the pictures.

My Students

My students are teenagers with dreams. They need all the support and resources to reach those dreams. They are great human beings that deserve an education. They have great potential to be someone in life. They are part of an amazing school that has a strong sense of inclusion. My students are truly diverse, and some of them come from different countries around the world.

My students help each other succeed in my class, and they are enthusiastic about learning another language!

Their willingness to learn Spanish shows their leadership. Spanish is the second language for many, but the third, fourth or fifth language for others.

My Project

Since we can't provide field trips and we can't finance every child's trip to visit other countries, what can we do? We can incorporate the use of visuals in the classroom through color images. We can facilitate a better image by providing color images to students who are unable to travel or attend a festival in the city.

We can live out the experience through color images with the lens, ink and paper.

The use of a lens will provide a better image quality for their understanding of different cultures. Color copies of pictures will engage them in the lesson. We will be able to capture different frames of cultures from Spanish-speaking countries throughout the year. The use of a bag will let us protect our lens.
