"Encanto" and Colombia

Natalie M.

We watched Encanto and listened to the soundtrack and the kids loved it, and wanted to learn more about Columbia and other topics from the movie.

This lesson takes a deep dive into the world of Encanto with hands-on activities such as cooking, gardening, and building bridges, as well as researching Colombia.
