This is the story of the Aztec’s historic 200+ year pilgrimage, as told from the 16th Century Primary source: The Codex Boturini.
The Aztecs came from a place in the north called: Aztlan, which means, “place of the White Heron.”
The Aztecs left their homeland Aztlan in about 1111 C.E. After more than 200 years of trials and tribulations, they stopped when they saw their sign from their god Huitzilopochtli: the eagle perched on the cactus. There, they would build one of the greatest cities in world history.
This is the story of their historic migration from Aztlan to Tenochtitlan in their own words.

Ciensación fue creado con el apoyo de UNESCO Brasil para promover una cultura de experimentos cortos «para poner las manos en la masa» y una educación científica que estimule el desarrollo de habilidades.
El sitio web es un compilado de REA con actividades cortas de investigación —se llevan a cabo en menos de 10 minutos— que pueden incorporarse con facilidad a la enseñanza del día a día en las clases regulares. En vez de simplemente ilustrar conceptos científicos o fenómenos naturales, estos experimentos prácticos traen preguntas para que los alumnos se involucren en debates sobre la búsqueda de evidencias. Fueron elaborados para estimular el pensamiento crítico y las mentes curiosas y para que los alumnos sientan el placer de descubrir. En otras palabras: para enseñar ciencias como una actividad, como un arte fascinante que los alumnos querrán dominar.
Los docentes están invitados a publicar sus propios experimentos para «poner las manos en la masa» en Ciensación. Los experimentos enviados que pasen el proceso de revisión serán publicados como REA en portugués, español e inglés, bajo la licencia internacional Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0.

Middle school is a conflict-ridden stage, particularly for our emerging bilingual students, who are normally known as ELLs. Not only do they have to overcome numerous problems of linguistic and cultural adaptation, but they also have to face challenges such as family or economic instability and moves, often cross-border. Indeed, it is not uncommon to meet Hispanic students: Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Salvadorans, etc. who travel to their countries of origin, or to the countries of origin of their parents for seasons, sometimes even to stay and live there, despite having been born in the United States and having lived here all their schooling until that moment. It is also quite common to see students who migrate with their families to the United States when they are already 11 or 12 years old and who, as we mentioned, not only have to learn the language, but adapt to a new life, culture and traditions.In this lesson plan we propose to use these personal experiences to introduce basic conversational vocabulary. It is designed for both dual immersion programs and English development classes.
This OER Lesson plan/unit was created by Danielle Fulcher as part of the 2023 World Language OER Summer work and training. Educators worked with NDE staff to create OER Learning Plans and materials. The attached Lesson Plan is designed for 9 - 12 World Language Arts teachers for student learning of Novice-Mid Learners of Spanish. This is a lesson to introduce the concept of culture to novice level Spanish students. Using the analogy of the "cultural iceberg" students take a closer look at what culture is and to which cultures they belong. We go further by taking a look at greetings in their own culture and comparing them to greetings in Spanish-speaking countries. Students are able to define what a typical greeting looks like and what influences how those greeting rituals look on the surface. This resource comes with a pdf of a slideshow with information and a pdf worksheet for your students to analyze the concept of culture.This Lesson Plan addresses the following NDE World Language Standard(s): NE WL 2.1.b, 2.2.bIt is expected that this Lesson Plan will take students 50 minutes to complete.
This reading and listening activity aligns well to a novice-level unit about personal descriptions. Students listen to a song and read its lyrics. A handout is included to guide students to demonstrate their comprehension.
