Current Events in Venezuela 2019
How can you make today’s Venezuelan Crises concrete for Spanish students?
Price of Food and Wages
Students predict how many hours they would have to work if they lived in Venezuela and received minimum wage.
Students predict prices for a typical household of five’s necessities. They can do this for three dates, January 31st, February 6th, and February 13th.
Price of Education
Students read prices written in words and write the numerals on a work sheet and calculate from bolivares to dollars. Students discuss the implications when they do the same for the father’s wages.
Agua en Venezuela
Students read the difficulty that Cristina has to bring a water bottle to school. Free download.
All net proceeds go to three Venezuelan families. Help support their education and keep them well-fed and with medicines when they need them.
Once a year I send them used clothing from my family and colleagues at school.
