5th grade: The fifth graders began their cultural journey to Spain this year. We have specifically been concentrating on the city of Madrid for the first trimester. Recently we talked about how the "Museo del Prado" is one of the main tourist attractions in Madrid. One of the most famous paintings in the museum is "Las Meninas." The students were asked to study the painting and create a Spanish dialogue to go along with the characters in the painting. It was quite impressive how they were able to include past vocabulary and phrases to make the characters come alive. You can see them below!
