A Bird's Eye View of the Caribbean: Art, Folklore, and Music

Students examine the Caribbean in terms of its music, art, and folklore. As a class, they listen to a folktale and discuss the difference between telling a story and reading a story. In groups, they write their own folktale and share it with the class. They use the internet to research what it was like to grow up in Cuba during the 1970s. To end the lesson, they view examples of artwork and reflect on them in their journals.
