Our Spanish FLES students at Idle Hour Elementary have been busy with some great hands-on learning projects!

Recently, the fifth grade Spanish FLES class at Idle Hour learned about the Mayan-based legend of the worry dolls. Children tell the doll their problems at night and place them under their pillows. When they wake up, they have the knowledge of how to get rid of their problems. The students created the dolls using Aguayo, a traditional Guatemalan cloth and other textiles.

The fourth grade Spanish FLES class at Idle Hour learned about the Nasca Sand Lines in Peru from 500 B.C. -550 A.D. They are geoglyphs formed by scraping darker stones from the desert floor to show the lighter stone below. Students recreated smaller versions by scraping out a sand mixture using pictures of actual Peruvian geoglyphs!
