Running of the Bulls Reenactment:  Michael Clauss - (Download this helpful hint as a PDF)

This activity is a great way of teaching about a specific cultural or historical event and energizing your class, Spanish club, or Spanish honor society.  I came up with the idea after watching a live television broadcast of the running of the bulls in Pamplona.  At the time I was the advisor for the Spanish club at Dover High School and decided it would be fun to create a video reenactment of the running of the bulls with the club.  It turned out to be a lot of fun for everyone involved.  The cost was very low.  I told the kids to wear white outfits.  We made some bull masks out of cardboard boxes from the recycling pile and some paint from the art room.  I bought a yard or two of red fabric from a craft store and we cut it into strips to use for neck scarves.  I hope you enjoy the final product and that it gives you some ideas about events you could reenact with your group.   One last piece of advice is to make sure that you clear it with your building administrator.

If you decide to do your own reenactment let us know how it turns out.

Here is one sent in from Susan Dromey Heeter of St. Mary Academy.
