Teaching the novel Vida y Muerte en la Mara Salvatrucha- Chapter 6

If you’ve been lurking around these posts, check out It is a great novel! (I might have said that before.)

This chapter was perfect for this Martina Bex “ activity! I did a sample doodle for the kids after Chapter 5 so that they would have an idea what I was looking for.

In Chapter 6, the narrator describes typical jobs in his gang and even his own job. He also describes a confrontation with an elderly woman and a run in with her grand-daughter. Because the events are so diverse, it allows for a lot of creativity in their doodles! I give the activity two thumbs up! The kids really enjoyed it and it brought out their creative side. Thanks Martina, for another great idea!
