Siempre que caminaba por las calles de mi ciudad durante la época de carnavales, sentía la música de los tambores e inmediatamente sabía que la comparsa ya se estaba acercando al palco donde toda la familia disfrutaba del carnaval. Era imposible resistirse al ritmo de la comparsa, a la alegría y energía de sus artistas y siempre quedaba atrapada en la multitud de bailadores que acompañan la comparsa.

Each family has their own family traditions during the holiday. That’s what makes this time of year so special. Whether your traditions include gathering the family together over presents and a meal or avoiding family and spending the holiday alone, there is a tradition involved. So I thought it would be nice for your students to share a little piece of their family traditions in a visual presentation.

There are only three requirements for this project:

  • First, students must create a visual presentation for their project about what they do and what they eat during the holiday season.
  • Second, students must write a one-page paper to explain their visual presentation.
  • Third, students must present their presentations to the class.

Students have so many options for this project, but the point is for them to express themselves in a manner that represents who they are as a person, their family influences, and their knowledge of the foreign language. Give students the following options to assist them in the organization of their visual presentations.
