Celebrate "El Día Internacional de La Paz"

Thursday, September 20, 2012

September 21st is the International Day of Peace. What a great opportunity to make it a teachable moment and connect our Spanish curriculum to this important celebration. We can get our students thinking about peace and what it means by a simple project where they can also involve their new language skills.

This is a very simple craft children can personalize, take home, and share more with their families. It's a very simple necklace made of cardboard and yarn. 

Click on the picture below to download the template for your students to use to create their own necklaces.
Colombian singer, Juanes has a beautiful song called "Paz, Paz, Paz."  Put together a sing-along using this song or use it as background music while the children put their necklace activity together.

Somos la nueva semilla del futuro, de la vida,
Somos los niños que cantan por la paz y la esperanza.
Somos la nueva semilla del futuro, de la vida.
Somos los niños que cantan por la paz y la esperanza.

Dame la mano, vamos todos a soñar con la paz,
Dame la mano, vamos todos a soñar con la paz.

¡Paz, paz, paz, paz, paz, paz, paz,
Paz, paz, paz, paz, paz, paz, paz!

Have fun celebration peace in class!
