- Muriel Strode

Our childhood games from Spanish-speaking countries include memorable cultural lessons for the students. The students learn about the children who come to the United States as migrants. The students then have fun playing childhood games from around the Spanish-speaking world.
Movies are perfect to increase students' cultural awareness and knowledge.
