This is a “really cool” way to learn some Latino/Hispanic culture and create a bulletin board wall to share with your school!! This idea developed during February's Black History Month around the idea of civil rights. I wanted students to see use this month to expand upon Black History and add some Hispanic civil rights heroes to a display wall for all to enjoy.
I've included photo examples of the bulletin board, and the artwork I'm having the students create to go along with their Latino Hero's description.
Students will work in PAIRS (or alone) to scan QR codes, or visit noted websites, and research some famous Hispanic Civil Rights Activists. They may choose whomever they like, as long as they are a real “Civil Rights Hero.” (i.e., not Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite…)
A step-by-step checklist is included, so students know exactly what to do.
This activity is in English, so everyone at our school can learn about the Hispanic leaders we've chosen to describe and draw.
This is a GREAT substitute activity. :)
