This week, we started preparing for our first trip next week! We read a book called Quienquiera que seas (Whoever You Are) to introduce cultura (culture) to the students. The book celebrates different cultures all over the world, and emphasizes that while people live their lives differently, we are also similar in many ways (our joys, our pains and our hearts are all the same). We talked about what makes up a person’s culture and discussed aspects such as holidays, languages, foods, skin color, schools, etc. This book served as an introduction for our travels to Spanish speaking countries and to remind students we must always respect other culturas and have an open mind. Then, students got to decorate their own pasaportes! Check out the photos below!
