Have students answer the following questions in their cuadernos…
De niño, ¿Cómo celebrabas el cuatro de Julio?
¿Cuales costumbres tiene su familia en los Dias Festivos?
De niño, ¿cuál era tu día festivo favorito?
- Ask students what they know about el cuatro de Julio then ask students what they know about Dia de Independencia in Mexico.
- Present slideshow to students and show the images and videos about Dia de Los Muertos. They will be using the Frame to take notes.
- Ask students to write down their observations about slide 18 (McGrito from McDonalds).
- On the last slide students will use their vocab list (linked above) that coincides with the vocab needed to answer these questions. After answering questions they will be given a giant sticky note and with a partner will create a venn diagram. I recommend purchasing the giant sticky notes from amazon.

Students will be allotted 20 minutes using their vocab and presentation notes to create a diagram showing differences and similarities. During this time students will be required to speak only in Spanish.
