Families light diamond-shaped paper balloons called globos on Christmas Eve and release them into the night sky Everywhere you go, you will see families, businesspeople, couples, and singles populating local parrillas (Argentine grills). Think of a feast with slabs of beef and racks of lamb. Argentina is a vast country whose dramatic mountain landscapes and long coastline lends itself to outdoor sports. Popular activities include canoeing, cycling, diving, hiking, rock climbing and mountaineering, skiing, surfing, windsurfing. Customs & Traditions Activity: Winter Holiday Around the World Objective: Students will be able to compare and contrast the Argentina Christmas traditions to their winter holiday traditions. Students will be given several books and resources to compare the traditions of Argentina Christmas to what they celebrate during the winter. If there are students with religious beliefs that prohibit them from celebrating holidays, the lesson would have to be adapted to compare and contrast everyday family activities. Such as; What does your family usually eat?, Do you have relatives come over? Students will make Venn Diagrams on the computer where they can add in pictures as well. Students will share their Venn Diagrams with the class. A writing assignment could be linked to this such as a short essay. 3rd-4th grade Tango Stories Objective: Students will be able to write creative stories incorporating facts they have learned about Argentina and the Tango. Begin lesson by playing the Tango and ask students if they know what kind of music this is. Ask them if it is music to dance to. Allow students to take a moment to dance to it if they wish to. Ask students what instruments they hear or if they think this music was listened to long ago or now. Show a video of tango dancing so students understand the concept. Using a map or a globe show students that Tango music originated from Argentina. Have students make a graphic organizer of everything they have learned from Argentina from past lessons. The students will write creative stories including information they know about Argentina and Tango music. Review story elements with the class to ensure their stories include a setting, plot, characters, etc. Call attention to where the setting and characters could be (Argentina, two dancers, etc.) More Facts on Argentina When Argentine children lose a baby tooth, they will put it under their pillow at night.
