The "Runaway Tortilla" comes to FP Spanish!

After a unit study on foods, Dr. Campos’ 6th grade Spanish class put on a puppet performance of La Tortilla Corredora/The Runaway Tortilla for Sra. D’Ecclesiis Grade 2 Spanish class. This story is a folktale similar to the Gingerbread Man. The Grade 6 students studied the importance of tortillas in Latin American cultures as well as its history. House 25 read "La tortilla de Burro" and discussed the ingredients and the process of making fresh tortillas, to get ready for a puppet show prepared by the Grade 6 Spanish students. As a culminating project, students also presented cooking videos with tortillas as their inspiration for their recipe!
