This web-based research activity, created by The Gifted Gabber, is a perfect activity to leave for sub days or to use for independent computer time.
Students research Christmas traditions in Argentina, Venezuela, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico.
The format is a simple fill-in-the-blank style web quest. However, it is the perfect framework to use with expansion activities such as class trivia games or class discussion. This activity is to be completed in English. No Spanish skills are required, making this a perfect activity for a social studies or World Cultures class in addition to entry-level Spanish classes. This simple activity would be great for grades 6-12.
