5TH GRADERS HAVE AN ESPERANZA DAY


Fifth graders celebrated the end of their ELA unit on Human Rights with different activities and food inspired by the book Esperanza Rising. Students rotated through several learning stations that related to the most important parts of the book. They learned how to make yarn dolls which represented the treasure that Esperanza took with her when she moved with her family to California.  They made Mexican flags and piƱatas to represent her home country.  Students used a map to show the path that Eperanza's family took on their journey to California.  Students also used primary documents to understand the Dust Bowl that affected the conditions of the farm workers in the book.  At the end of the fun-filled day, students ate traditional Mexican food. Buen trabajo 5th grado.
