Ali Nava is an elementary teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico and a member of the first-grade cadre in our Common Core in Albuquerque project.
In this video, Ali describes the "realia" activity she used to introduce Burro's Tortillas and some of the items she brought into the classroom for the lesson. The activity included a discussion of how tortillas are made and included tools used, such as a metate (grinding stone) and tortillera (tortilla press).
