Día de la Patria el 18 de septiembre Chile

*FIESTAS PATRIAS: ¿Qué celebra Chile el 18 de septiembre?: This is a short video from Chile- consider doing a 'video walk' if the Spanish is too high a level for your students-stop at various points and narrate the events yourself in more comprehensible Spanish.

*CHILE EN IMAGENES: This is a great video to take a visual tour of the country. You can also compare and contrast with where you live-Here are mountains in ___, do we have mountains? Are they big or small? The mountains in Chile are very big/ tall., etc.

*PASOS DE LA CUECA, LA DANZA NACIONAL: Click here for a great infographic that shows the steps to la cueca

*NATALIA UNA NIÑA MAPUCHE: Part of an AMAZING series on indigenous peoples in Chile. Again, these are great videos to do a video walk with, or to listen for certain vocabulary, or to extend an existing lesson. Click here for the video!
