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.  Movies also provide meaningful language input and are excellent resources to promote class discussions and character studies. Some of our students' favorite movies include Coco, Ferdinand, Instructions Not Included, McFarland U.S.A., Dora y la Ciudad Perdida and many more.  Here is a list of movies organized by topic with summaries and movie ratings!
