Thanksgiving is a uniquely American holiday. What are some holidays and festivals only celebrated in the Spanish-speaking world? This differentiated activity allows students to view engaging pictures of 6 different holidays and choose two to research. Each picture comes with a short video either showing imagery of the celebration or describing it. Students are then asked to summarize what they have learned.
Festivals and holidays include:
1) Los Sanfermines (Running of the Bulls)
2) La Feria Sevillana
3) La Tomatina
4) Las Barilletas Gigantes de Guatemala
5) Carnaval de México
6) El Día de los Reyes Magos
