Students then work in groups to add these cultural elements to the original stories they created for homework. Finally, student groups narrate their stories while their classmates act them out. The lesson concludes with Mr. Muirhead and the students playing Los Cajones (the big boxes). This video also shows a field trip to the local Latino community.
