This is a reading describing the lives of people living in extreme poverty in Guatemala who are forced to forage in a municipal dump to make a living. There are many images on the page to aid in comprehension. This was designed to accompany the DVD "Recycled Life" but can easily stand alone as an informational text for level 1-2 novice Spanish students.

Packet contains a reading with images interspersed throughout the text to assist comprehension, a reading without the additional images, and the same reading with comprehension questions. There is also a fully illustrated 7-slide slideshow reading that is easy to project for the class for discussion! In addition, there is a mini-poster project that could be used as an activity or an assessment, and is a great way to display student work.

NOTE: Answer key is not included, but the questions are very simple!
