How do you incorporate Hispanic Heritage Month into your classroom routine? Believe it or not, you can do it in about 15 minutes every day using dedicated Person of the Day slides. Read on to find out how!

Hispanic Heritage Month Person of the Day Slides

I created these slides to allow my students to see themselves represented in their learning.

After seeing the same two or three Hispanic figures being taught for so long, I knew there were more. I researched and researched and found 45 well-known, lesser-known, and modern Hispanic figures to teach about.

Each person has five associated slides. Ideally, you should teach all five slides daily as they build upon each other.

At a minimum, do the first two slides. Read on for more iterations of these Person of the Day slides.

Slide #1 – Vote! Guessing & Class Vote

First things first, let’s pique students’ interest. Show an actual image of the person of the day. Take a class vote and tally the number of students familiar/unfamiliar with the person.

You can skip this slide, but it is an excellent opportunity to tap into students’ prior knowledge and spark conversation. It’ll get their gears turning and spark excitement.

Slide #2 – Learn! Introduce a Short Biography

Next, students will read a summary and view the YouTube video(s) provided to learn more about the person.

I researched for you – No more scrambling to find all the information for each person! Introduce the person, read the short biography snippet, then play the accompanying YouTube video that provides more context!

The videos help students gain a deeper understanding of each figure.

NOTE: Please preview all videos ahead of time. While I found and included kid-friendly videos, it should ultimately be up to the classroom teacher’s discretion whether the video suits their grade level and age range.

Slide #3 – Analyze! Quote Analysis

A quote from the person is included for analysis. Use the consideration questions provided to guide student thinking.

Encourage critical, outside-the-box thinking with this slide. You can skip it, but it helps sharpen students’ analytical skills.

**Best suited for upper elementary grades 3-5 but can be easily deleted if not appropriate for your learners.**

Slide #4 – Quiz & Collaborate! Wrap-up

We know a check for understanding is a must. So afterward, students can test their memory by filling in the blanks with simple words from the summary on SLIDE 2.

There is also a discussion question related to the person of the day. You can allow students to discuss their answers to the thought-provoking question among themselves so that there isn’t just teacher talk.

You can choose students to share with the whole group or make it a partner discussion.

Slide #5 – Check & Collaborate! Answers

Finally, it’s time to reveal the answers to the mini-quiz on slide 4.

In addition, students can collaborate by turning and telling a partner something they’ve learned about the person of the day (prompt on-screen).

Do not skip this slide if you’re doing slide 4.

What else?

I know it would be convenient to have a quick way to navigate these 200+ slides. I’ve included a clickable table of contents & ‘Home’ icons on EVERY slide that links back to the Table of Contents. E-a-s-y!

So that you’re not fumbling back and forth, I’ve added ‘Home’ icons on EVERY slide that link back to the Table of Contents. E-a-s-y!

Also, you can go in any order you want! There is no particular schedule for who to choose on certain days.
