Tertulia: Reconstructing our identity
With the purpose of introducing our inquiry units: «Who We are» and «Where we are in place and time», we held a very entertaining social gathering in which two generations shared the traditions and customs of their grandparents.
Students had the chance to listen and ask questions about family histories and the stories of their ancestors. In this way, they began to understand the origin of our identity and why we are the way we are. It was a great opportunity to recognize the family legacy from the stories of the grandparents.
The children received them with great affection and kids were surprised by objects from the past that they brought with them and their transformation over time.
Thanks to the grandparents who visited us and contributed to the recognition of our identity.
