Hispanic Heritage Month is all about celebrating the contributions and heritage of Hispanic and Latin American culture. We are really excited to share with you some lesson plan ideas that will help your students strengthen writing skills, learn Spanish vocabulary and identify Latin American flags.
Raise The Flag!
Grade Level: Pre-K- 12
Great for: History, Fine Arts and Holidays
Kick off the fun with a flag project that is perfect for all ages! The Flag With Pole die allows students to use their artistic skills to recreate the colors and patterns of their favorite Latin America country flag. Use this fun Passport Cover And Page die in conjunction with the already made flags to help your students "travel" to their favorite Latin American country to learn more about it's heritage and historical contributions. At the end of their "trip", students can give an oral presentation to share with the class of what they learned.
Language Learning With Flashcards!
Grade Level: Pre-K- 2
Great for: English Language Arts, Foreign Language and Fine Arts & Crafts
Learning Spanish basics like the ABC's, sight words and identifying simple vocabulary is made easy and fun with the ABC flashcards and accompanying lesson plan. For older students, these flashcards can be taken home for reinforced learning outside of the classroom. The best part of these flashcards is that they once they are created they can be used over and over again!
Write Outside The Box
Grade Level: 3-5
Great for: English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Fine Arts & Crafts
Last but not least is this outside-the-box Globe Cover Book Die. With the world right at their fingertips, students can identify and label the location of all Latin American countries. Help your students practice and perfect their writing skills by focusing on a specific country and writing a report of information they find. To improve retention and speaking skills students can give an oral presentation using the facts they learned.
