I can definitely use this link to guide my students in comparing/contrasting American holidays and celebrations to those of Hispanic cultures for my foreign language classroom. I was searching for more visual social tech sources for my classroom, and this was a good spot! If you click on the circle links at the top of the page, you can also find accompanying bios, timelimes, geography sources, links on pastimes/hobbies, and music and video clips! I also like how the text that accompanies the photo sources is student-friendly. Also applicable for social studies and English content areas. Check it out for yourself!
