During this time of Quarantine and of staying at home to work and study, in collaboration with our graduate student assistants, we have built a package of activities that are related to Colombia and its culture and geography. In this package we want to share with you activities that go from Kindergarten up to 12 grade.
As some of you know, we at the LAII department of the University of New Mexico have some Cultural Boxes with materials that you can use in class to teach the culture and traditions of the different countries of South and Central America. Today we are going to present Colombia’s Virtual Cultural Box, a didactic resource full of guides, activities, videos and knowledge about Colombia. This Virtual Cultural Box comes with a teaching guide, where teachers can find other resources and instructions on how to use the different activities from the Cultural Box.
We are happy to share with all of you this new package of guides that are part of the Viajamos a… project and the My Passport activities.
This 2020 has been a very different year from what we imagined it would be like. It has been a year in which it has allowed us to enjoy more of the coexistence with our families and has led us to live a unique experience in life. The commemoration of Earth Day takes place on April 22 of each year and is celebrated in honor of the resources, places and raw materials that the earth offers us.
That is why in Vamos a Leer, we have decided to make some guides that as a teacher will allow you to explore, learn and teach about natural resources and the importance of Earth Day from Colombia.
These guides are part of My Passport activities and have been designed incorporating activities aligned with the following Common Core Standards.
We hope that you enjoy and use the guides that we made for you.
My Passport is a project we are working on that is part of Viajamos A… of our website, which will have activities from countries like Ecuador, Colombia, Peru, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Mexico.
The principal idea of My Passport is to build a curriculum that helps teachers and students to travel through South and Central America without leaving the classroom. While engaging in the activities, students and teachers will learn new concepts, cultures and places.
In My Passport you will find a variety of activities and resources to teach, learn and travel to South and Central America. The different resources of My passport have been designed incorporating activities aligned with the following Common Core Standards, and are divided in:
Cultural Virtual Boxes. Teaching Guide Cultural Virtual Boxes. Single guides.
