Kids and adults will take a ride on the Polar Express as they play these board games! There are 3 game boards that can be printed, glued to pieces of light cardboard and laminated for future use. Game boards have different questions.
Can be printed in color or black and white. Good for small groups. Rotate the boards among the groups so that everyone can answer all the questions.
Polar Express bookmarks and winner certificates are included.

This 12 slide powerpoint features 10 statements which ask students to decide if they are true or false. Click ahead, and it will tell you the answer and also give an explanation. Also includes links or other information in the notes section of the powerpoint.
These are 10 things that a lot of students don't know, but they definitely should. Features common misconceptions about the Spanish language worldwide and in the US as well as about the people who speak Spanish. Great lesson to talk about stereotypes and perceptions. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a person is called "Spanish" because they speak Spanish, which is something I hear a lot, not just from children, but from adults as well. The goal of this lesson is to put an end to ignorance and inform people about what reality is.
1. Spanish is spoken the same everywhere.
2. English is the official language of the United States.
3. New Mexico was once part of Mexico.
4. Everyone in Mexico speaks Spanish.
5. Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day.
6. The U.S. has a larger Spanish speaking population than Spain.
7. A person who speaks Spanish is Spanish.
8. A Mexican can be blonde, blue eyed.
9. English is more common than Spanish worldwide.
10. Taco Bell is Mexican food.
