Semana Santa Guatemala

Teacher Resources and Bonus Materials

Semana Santa (Holy Week) is an exciting time in Guatemala, full of festivities and traditions. We've put together some resources that we hope will be useful for teachers, educators, homeschoolers, and anyone else who might be able to use them.

Semana Santa Powerpoints

In this section, we've put together a couple of powerpoints that you may find useful showing to a class, or perhaps assigning as homework to do some research. It is based on the Semana Santa 101 book, and would benefit from your explanation, but can also be used independently by students.

We've embedded the Slideshare version here so that you can view it without downloading the file, as it's rather large. All online viewers distort the file just a bit (nothing major) so if you can, it's better to download.

If you'd rather download the file in .ppt format, download Semana Santa in Guatemala here (right click & save as).
