Reading suitable for a level 3 or higher Spanish class about the train "La Bestia" that travels from southern Mexico to the US border, bringing a flood of Central American immigrants and refugees. This dangerous journey results in violence, despair, and even death for many migrants each year, but for some, it is their only hope of survival.
Includes a reproducible reading, vocabulary in context activity, questions, and quiz, all with answer keys.
Also includes the ONLINE interactive google slides version of the reading and vocabulary/questions activities with answer keys. If the teacher and students have google accounts, all work can be assigned and collected online! Works with laptops, chromebooks, ipads, and more! GO PAPERLESS!
If you DO NOT wish to have the ONLINE components in addition to the reproducible product, the reproducible product can be purchased alone here: La Bestia Reading and Activities
