In this lesson students will simulate some of the physical activities immigrants had to do when they came to Colorado. All stations have cue cards that have excerpts straight from the Boulder County Latino History Project website.
In this lesson students examine latino home remedies. Home-produced remedies (remedios) are widely valued in Latina/o communities. Latinos often continue to love and use shared remedies for cures and prevention. Many Latina/o students carry a wealth of knowledge related to the remedios used for health and wellness within their families and communities. All student can share and learn from home-based remedios that have been used for centuries.
Students will draw historical and community connections by creating a writing instructional sample which will be a “how to” make and use a home remedy. Students will create a collective Remedies/Remedios book in dictionary format.
