Are you looking for a great cultural activity to engage your students & help them learn about Semana Santa (Holy Week) & Pascua (Easter) in Spain? Then this Breakout is for YOU!!

❤ ❤ ❤ Make sure to click on "PREVIEW" to see the detailed preview of this Breakout! ❤ ❤ ❤

Your class pretends to go to Spain to learn about the traditions of Semana Santa (Holy Week)!

This Breakout contains two versions, one has most instructions/clues written in Spanish & the other has most instructions/clues written in English. This makes it EASY for YOU to differentiate for YOUR students & classroom needs! BOTH versions have the SAME LOCK CODES!

This Breakout requires students to use BOTH English and Spanish to solve the clues. Students will need to use problem solving strategies to solve the clues and unlock the boxes.

It focuses on:

- The names of the different days.

- Learning about the Processions and vocabulary associated with them.

- Vocabulary regarding typical dress during Semana Santa

- Vocabulary associated with typical Semana Santa foods

- A brief history of Semana Santa

- Commercialized Easter vocabulary in Spanish & English

I've included a list of websites I used to create the Breakout. You can provide your students with this list to help them solve the clues faster.

This Breakout is ideal for 4-12 students, but you could easily divide your room in half & have two groups competing simultaneously, making it perfect for larger groups!
