Spanish students can read the prices in bolivares on the infographc and calculate the amount in dollars for Cristina's monthly educational expenses. They then analyze the wage her father earns and discuss how many hours he must work to educate her.

PDF includes:

  • Infographic with the amount in bolivares written in words.
  • Worksheet for writing the amounts in numerals and converting to dollars.
  • Answer sheet with the amounts in numerals.

This copyrighted document is fully editable because we are rushing to make this timely and there may be a few spelling typos which I hope you will privately share with me at minutebyminutespanish@gmail. com. I wasn't going to create any new activities because I have a new class to prep and it takes up all my time! But this info is so compelling that I want to share it and help these families to eat and pay for their children's medicines and education.
