A community based activity to celebrate Three Wise Kings Day in the WL classroom

The Three Kings Day is a very important day for Christians around the world.  It’s mostly celebrated in Spain and Latin America, but also across Europe on January 6, which is the 12th day of Christmas known as the Feast of the Epiphany, or Three Kings’ Day. 

The three Kings came from distant countries to visit baby Jesus after his birth.and were led by a star to the manger in Bethlehem. And there Melchor delivered myrrh, Gaspar the incense and Baltasar the gold.  These three gifts are based on the tradition that is still practiced today at Christmas. These gifts have curative benefits that have been known for thousands of years and today these products are still very useful in modern medicine.

Although this is a religious celebration the following activity is not meant to be a religious one.  The idea is simply taking a cultural tradition to practice and give meaning to the use of the L2 in our classroom.

In this activity students will choose three things or people to give three presents to.  The idea is that each gift will help improve some kind of challenging situation the person or thing has been going through in the last year or so.  

Presents can be given to important people in the students´lives, to famous people they like or to things like the Earth, the Sea, ect.
