Kids of Guatemala - K-2
All students Kindergarten through 2nd grade watched two videos about what life is like in Guatemala from the point of view of 2 children. The first video features Mariaelena, a 7 year old child who lives with her family on a farm where they grow coffee and macadamia nuts. The second video is about a 9-year-old boy named Jorge who lives in the town of San Marcos with his twin brother and cousin. His father is a doctor in a medical clinic and his mother runs the clinic pharmacy. Our students engaged in a discussion about how the lives of children in Guatemala are different and similar to their own.
