Read the notes you took for your
Exploración. Gather together photos and souvenirs from family
celebrations that have been meaningful to you, like favors from a birthday or a
wedding. Use a rectangular box to arrange them as in a diorama. You might number

montage to the class and narrate an incident from the celebration that you chose.
