I love this day! 1. What a great way to discuss the “cultural” aspects about the Christmas story. 2. Who doesn’t like a innocent prank?
I used this news clip in combination with Martina Bex’s materials. I started by telling the students “this is one of my favorite holidays. The history of this celebration is tragic, however now a days the celebration is a lot of fun.”
I gave them the tasks to watch this clip and figure out:
1. The name of the celebration.
2. The date of this celebration.
3. The history
4. How it is celebrated presently.
I was thoroughly impressed that even my Spanish 1’s were able to figure out these facts.
After we watched this clip, did some other activities, we made our own monigotes to prank the “innocent” victims.
