In this lesson, children will watch the webisode, play a fun “¡Puedo!: I can!” game and do other hands-on activities to learn new Spanish vocabulary. In the webisode “Making a Splash” Noah tries to take swimming lessons, but ends up water skiing instead! When Brisa invites Noah and Nell to join her at “la piscina” or pool on a hot day, Noah gets nervous because he can’t swim. He asks the pool manager where to get swimming lessons, but the manager only speaks Spanish and doesn’t understand what Noah asks. He sends Noah to the dock to go fishing, where he ends up joining a group of water skiers on open water! Good thing he learned the Spanish words for “I can swim” and “I can’t swim” to get him out of his mess.

After many hilarious attempts to ride a horse, Noah finally gallops off into the sunset, and gets to the library just before closing time. Students can learn, build upon, and apply the Spanish vocabulary through playing the interactive games. In the lesson plan, students will practice this Spanish vocabulary through a variety of hands-on games, and making craft dough to practice identifying shapes in Spanish.

The Tailenders

Global Recordings Network (GRN), founded in Los Angeles in 1939, has produced audio versions of Bible stories in over 5,500 languages, and aims to record in every language on earth. They distribute the recordings, along with ultra-low-tech hand-wind players, in isolated regions and among displaced migrant workers. The Bible stories played by the missionaries are sometimes the first encounter community members have had with recorded sound, and, even more frequently, the first time they have heard their own language recorded. GRN calls their target audience "the tailenders" because they are the last to be reached by worldwide evangelism. Filmed in the Solomon Islands, Mexico, India and the United States, The Tailenders focuses on the intersection of missionary activity and global capitalism and raises questions about how meaning, carried by the simple sound of a human voice, changes as it crosses language and culture.
