An introduction to Spanish Christmas traditions starting with the Christmas Lottery. Students watch a 3 minute advert for the Spanish lottery and learn about this tradition. The advert focuses on Justino, a Spanish factory worker who works nights and whose colleagues show great kindness when they win the lottery at Christmas. Students respond really well to this clip as it is similar to the famous Christmas adverts they are used to (John Lewis, M&S, Coca Cola).
This leads them on to do some research into other traditions in a mini inquiry project and home learning activity. Includes printable pdf worksheet to support research and inquiry, as well as Spanish lottery tickets to use as a bingo game and AFL tool.
Suitable for KS3.
My students love this lesson, I hope yours do too!
