Product Description
"You go to a restaurant in the States and kids have these game boards at the table. You don't see that ... in Spain. It's not because they can't afford to buy them, it's because that's not what eating together as a family is about." Emeril Lagasse (American celebrity chef ~ 1959)


Here are 50 fascinating facts about life in Hispanic countries.


Invited to dinner at a Hispanic friend's house and wondering what happened to your bread plate ?

Dying to ask for some ketchup ?


These 50 cultural curiosities offer your students insight into the fact that there are different ways to do what we consider to be everyday and quite usual things.


You get:
1. An overhead of 50 interesting facts in English colorfully illustrated and explained
* You can break this up over several days or weeks or introduce one fact a day as a class starter.

2. A summary handout sheet for absent students.

3. 'Mi Cuaderno'
~ a notebook check sheet with a Culture section where notes on these cultural differences would be filed.


You can ask a different student to read each point out loud to promote discussion.

With international travel made so easy nowadays plus the Internet, there are some customs today that have crossed borders.

But many have not.


It's easy to develop some critical thinking skills and let your students be inspired, enlightened, and enjoy discussing these sometimes quite curious cultural differences.


Everything is ready-to-use to make your job easy. (58 pages)

* OF SPECIAL NOTE *
I have created my products as Word documents because that is how I use them. They are unlocked so teachers can change vocabulary words or modify things if they wish.

If you prefer a different format for the overhead, below are some suggestions, however, you may have to insert the pictures by hand.

To Make A Slide Show In ActivInspire
If you use ActivInspire, you can save the Word document as a pdf (this is easily done with the newer versions of Word), then you can simply import the pdf to ActivInspire and have a document for that format.

To Make A Slide Show In PowerPoint
If you prefer to use the PowerPoint format, you can easily convert a Word document to a PowerPoint.

This link explains it clearly: 'Creating A PowerPoint From A Word Document.'
