Everyone in motion
This activity looks at migrations in the world and their influence on cultures. Firstly, we will analyse information related to migrations in human history. Secondly, we will see that migrations are sometimes both comings and goings and later the students must write a text in which each one recounts one week of their daily life and answers some questions. After that, the students are asked to think about a traditional celebration from the area, and a particular element they consider as popular culture and students will finish reading a poem in the Appendix III.
The aims of this activity are to get to know the main migratory flows in human history, understand culture as being changing and heterogeneous, critically analyse the concept of traditional culture and also, appreciate diverse cultural contributions.
