'La boda de la ratoncita' is a legend from the Cho'l Indians of Chiapas, México, which we've adapted and simplified to make it more accessible to students with Novice High to Intermediate Level. It tells the tale of a family of mice who set out to find the most powerful being in the world to marry their daughter, only to find that after talking to the Sun, Cloud, Wind, and Wall, that a mouse is the most powerful after all. The action is told in the simple past tense, with present tense used in the captions, and the story has a series of pattern sentences as asks the same question of each character they speak with, making the storyline ideal for language learning. Along with the minibook, the Activity Pack contains lesson plans and extension activities to re tell and re-enact the storyline, focusing on listening comprehension skills, an informational page in Spanish about the Cho'l Indians, and more! This is a great introduction to Mayan culture!
