Las Posadas: This English activity packet about Las Posadas in Mexico fits perfectly in a unit on Christmas around the world, or stands alone as a Hispanic culture lesson on Las Posadas.
The story of Las Posadas, which is an event commonly celebrated in Mexico, is described in a lovely non-fiction, informational text. Students learn about the different aspects of Las Posadas such as the meaning, the traditions, the foods and drinks served, and the party.
I have used this in ESL classes, and it would also work well in ELA classes as a multicultural lesson. Professionally illustrated, and written by a native Spanish speaker, this lessons is an exceptional activity that you won't find anywhere else. It includes:
1) A detailed Info Guide for teachers about Las Posadas
2) One nonfiction text (473 words)
3) Comprehension questions
4) An activity where students have to unscramble key vocab words and match them with their definitions, which they find within the context of the text.
