This Cultural Connection cultural reading and activities are based on this video titled "The Last Ice Merchant". This is a wonderful way to talk about the AP theme of Global Challenges, Personal and Public Identities or Families and Communities.
Here is a link to the short film: "The Last Ice Mechant": https://vimeo.com/66507747
I recommend using this cultural reading with Kara Jacob’s Kichwa legends unit http://reflecciones-kj.blogspot.com/2017/08/otra-leyenda-ecuatorian-el-kuychi.html
