We are in the middle of conferences and finishing up the quarter, but I thought I would share a couple great resources that I have found while planning a mini unit on Semana Santa, or holy week. I currently teach at a Catholic school, and holidays in the Spanish speaking world are a really easy way to incorporate theology through the culture. Even if you are at a public school, the traditions around the world make for great way to put culture at the core of language teaching.
Semana Santa Infograph Link
This infograph would be perfect to both teach the traditions of Semana Santa, as well as the geography of Mexico. It could be used as a reading comprehension activity, a reading station, or expanded by having groups research and present on how Semana Santa is presented in these different towns or regions.
This blog has a ton more infographs on Semana Santa.
This Pinterest board has both ideas for Semana Santa, but also Easter as well.
This is a great Pinterest Board with all things Holy Week.
I plan on basing my mini unit around this awesome cultural unit by the always fabulous Martina Bex. Her embedded readings and activities make it possible to easily teach culture completely in Spanish.
What resources do you have for Semana Santa? Please share in the comments!
