Las Posadas Activities
This series of 11 activities are designed to give students an accurate cultural view of the celebration of Las Posadas while acquiring new vocabulary and using reading skills in the target language.

Students will explore the traditions and celebrations of Las Posadas with cultural information provided on each page. Students will also learn the lyrics to the popular villancico "Pidiendo Posada" and complete activities to demonstrate comprehension and understanding of various cultural, grammatical, and vocabulary related aspects of this song.

The final summative activity asks students to synthesize all of the information they have learned to create an invitation to their own Posada party, create a to do list with things they must do or buy in preparation for the celebration, and complete a drawing of the inside and outside of their house all decorated for the holiday!

This Product Includes:
-Educator's Guide
-Vocabulary Activity
-9 pages that each contain cultural information about the holiday and pertinent vocabulary, a verse of the villancico "Pidiendo Posada", and accompanying questions/activity
-Closing Activity or Assessment

Note: Although some religious beliefs are referenced in the information provided, this activity is appropriate for public school students as well as private. As a public school teacher myself, I am careful with my presentation of religious information so as not to offend any of my students or their families.
