Last year, my 6th grade students researched and wrote descriptions of how each of the Spanish speaking countries celebrate the holidays. I combined all their work into a Glog to create a digital, cultural advent calendar. I have to remember to update it daily because I do not like to the country information until the actual date.
The students this year have enjoyed learning from last year’s students. They are doing the same research. They have the motivation to make it even better and their work will be featured for next year’s 6th graders.
