PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Las Posadas is a religious Mexican Christmas tradition that first started as a way to celebrate the journey of Mary and Joseph as they searched for shelter before the birth of Jesus. Las Posadas is celebrated in cities and towns across Mexico. Las Posadas is a 9-day celebration that takes place each year in December.

This unit includes many interactive activities and learning opportunities for students including reading passages about
*What is Las Posadas?

*Biography Organizer

***Plus a 5-page Las Posadas Flip Book

There are 3 main activities:
Vocabulary:
Introduce the 6 vocabulary words with the real-life photo posters included. You could post these posters around the classroom and have students travel around to match up and define the words in their flip flaps or use as a center activity. These posters are excellent for a bulletin board display too.

Reading:
Next, have students read the passages the history and traditions of Las Posadas and Mexico. There are questions and scenes for students to color and connect to the information. After reading the passages, have students answer the scavenger hunt organizer. These work well in centers, learning stations, and as partner work.

Activities:
There are many activities for students to complete to show what they know:
*Scavenger Hunt Organizer
*Meet Pepita & Biography Organizer
*Questions about Mexico
*Fact or Fiction Activity
*Just the Facts about Las Posadas
***Plus a Las Posadas 5-page Flip Book.

I usually have them do one page of the flip book at each center or station. They can use the articles as a reference source to help them complete the pages of the booklet. Lastly, they cut, color, and assemble the booklet. Flip up books can be glued or stapled inside their interactive notebooks, file folder, or a 12x18 piece of construction paper folded like a book cover.

Feliz Las Posadas!
