Last year, I started writing brief news articles. I loved how timely they were, but it was hard to put them together at various times and keep them relevant. I want to continue to do some this year. Then I wrote one about artists, which could be used throughout the year. I decided to put together some cultural ones that I could use each year this summer.
I wanted to put together a back to school edition. It is difficult for me to find a wonderful website with a lot of information in Spanish-speaking countries. I found this website about Colegio Peruano Británico. It has lots of information about this school. You could easily put together a web quest about this. I summarized a lot of information in this article. They even have Harry Potter like homes with a competition in the year! Also, check out their menu. Different fruit juices and dessert every day?! I’m sold!
I plan on having my students compare this school with our own school. I am really excited to share this with them!
ps: If you want some authentic resources for back to school, I am also starting to try to post a few items on TPT. You can check them out as well!
