Christmas, Natal, Navidad in Cuba, Mexico, and Portugal.
Fontes, Maria Joao, Ed.; Fontes, Manuel da Costa, Ed.
This material is a compilation of junior high school student-developed stories and games about the way Christmas is celebrated in Portugal, Mexico, and Cuba. The material was developed in the classroom by Portuguese, Mexican, and Cuban immigrant students and by American students who do not have a recent immigrant background, all of whom were participants in the Trilingual Program of the ABC Unified School District in California. The booklet has three main sections: (1) Memories of Christmas in the Azores and Angloa; (2) Memories of Christmas in Mexico and California; and (3) Memories of Christmas in Cuba. The student-developed materials, some written in English and others in Portuguese and Spanish, include maps, poems, short stories, words to unscramble, a spelling baseball game, seek-and-find word games, word matching games, crossword puzzles, and drawings.
