PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Interested in teaching your students about unique ways the New Year is celebrated around the world? This article was adapted to be read with upper-elementary schoolers. It details a very unique tradition in Ecuador where people make Año Viejo ("Old Year") dummies filled with straw. Before sewing up the dummies, people list their bad habits/ faults from the previous year and tuck them deep inside the stuffing of the dummies. At the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve, the dummies are burned in a bonfire in hopes that their faults will burn away and people can start fresh in the new year.

This pack includes an informative article about the ano viejo dummy tradition, as well as two activities. In the first activity, students will identify the main idea and supporting details in the article. In the second activity, students will create an illustrated version of their own ano viejo dummy. Copy the dummy pages front-to-back. On the front, students will illustrate a dummy. On the back side, students will list their "bad habits" from the old year and write what they would like to do differently in the new year.
