How to use in your classroom:

I use these reading as a gallery walk over two days. Other teachers have used one reading each day as a warm up activity to include culture in their lessons. Other teachers have created bulletin board displays with the readings on Semana Santa. These reading can also be used as sub plans! Leave the readings and follow up activity with your sub and your students will be learning culture all day!
