Andean Textiles - Lesson 2


Andean Textiles - Lesson 2

Logo for Andean Textiles - Lesson 2
This bilingual (Spanish - English) photostory is part of a unit on Andean Textiles I have posted here on MERLOT. This particular photostory deals with the question, "Como se tiñe los estambres andinos?" (How do they dye Andean yarn?) It is about 15 1/2 minutes long and is suitable for all levels of Spanish instruction, depending on how deep the instructor wishes to go with discussion and vocabulary.See accompanying "lesson websites" document for lesson plan ideas.
