El Proyectos dia de los Meurtos.
In the day of the dead or also known as Dia De Los Muertos, people all around Mexico and around the world set up these traditional altars that are made to represent those who have past. In Spanish culture, they make these altars to celebrate the person or person's who have passed..For the first project, we made an obituary based on someone or an animal that passed. In the project, we were instructed to write about them in Spanish. Obituaries in Spanish culture are placed on altars that show anything from there favorite food to what they liked to do. These alters are placed to celebrate their death and to honor them as a whole. These obviously include the obituaries that are placed onto the altar, they include photos and a brief description of what they were like and what they liked. As mentioned before, the altars have the person's favorite food and things that they liked to do, for example guitars are placed to represent their liking to the guitar. These are here for the spirits to take and celebrate with family members.
Next we have La Calavera. This project is fairly straight forward. We were instructed to make fun of someone that had already passed but in Spanish. So I decided to do Hitler. I did Hitler because I thought that it would be necessary to make fun of someone from the type of horrible things that they have done.
El Projecto de mi Inmigrante.
Here we have the project of immigrants, the purpose of this project is to work on the past tense, imperfect, and the pretérito parts of Spanish. In this project that we did I wasn't able to find any immigrants in my family due to me being 100% native american. However, what I did for my project was Albert Einstein. I did Albert Einstein because I quite frankly he was one of the people that caught my eye. In this project we were instructed to make a biography of our immigrants, in my case it was Albert Einstein. We had to write details about them in Spanish including, why they were famous or known, where they were born and raised, their spouses and of course their death date. After writing about them, we then edited the paper so we could put it on a piece of canvas. Once all the editing was done and finished, we then printed the finished biography and cut out pieces of the sentences, we then put glue on them and put them onto the canvas, we also had to include some photos of the person that you were doing for the project.
La Projecta De La Receta Con Mandados
In this project, our objective was to make a recipe that we found online. The purpose of this project is to use commands that we learned in the unit. The work that I did in this project was at times difficult for me personally because I have trouble with some of the conjugations in the sentences. However, in my opinion, I think that I did a decent job at finding a recipe. Unfortunately I wasn' t able to make the recipe that I found due to unexpected plans over the weekend. The recipe that I found is called Estofado de Garbanzos españoles y Espinaca. Which translates to Spanish Chickpea and Spinach Stew. This recipe is quite delightful and fairly easy to make as there aren't many steps in the recipe. As mentioned before, I wasn't able to make the recipe.
