This visual stimulus really grasp the idea behind "Balanced".
My students freak out with this image and they always make the same question...but...this isn't real, right?
And that's the main point, that it is, this is a real castell in Times Square. You can also make a connection to Risk-taker, or even modify the picture and adapt it just adding the Risk-taker definition instead of Balanced. The story behind this tradition is really inspiring for our students and I also usually introduce culture topics to make them think about similarities and differences with their own culture and make a Venn Diagram to see this comparison in a visual way.

Specifically for language classes you can:
  • introduce or review structures/patterns for comparing in Spanish
  • introduce some math vocabulary such types of figures, width, length...
  • work some cultural vocabulary
  • talk about History in Spain, what is Catalonia? what is Catalan? How different is Catalan from Spanish? Intercultural understanding...
  • options are just limited by your imagination!
