Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School Spanish students got to practice their language skills during two food-related field trips.
Grade 6 students in the Advanced Spanish class visited Santa Fe Market in Seaside to go on a scavenger hunt through the store looking for different types of meats, bakery items, vegetables, and fruits. They also wrote down words that were new to them. The trip ended with lunch in the taqueria and the chance to shop for additional treats.
Grade 7 students enjoyed their own lunchtime outing to Sarita’s Mexican restaurant in Monterey, where they ordered their meals in Spanish.
The trips gave students the opportunity to speak Spanish outside the classroom and exposed them to traditional and specialty foods from Spanish-speaking countries.
