Clockwise starting at the flag of Spain, we have the flag of Spain. Next is a mini book to count to five in Spanish, a pocket to hold flashcards of animals with their names in both Spanish and English, and then some colors in Spanish. Next to that is art illustrating distance and perspective. The kids drew a road from the Spanish market, to Ferdinand's tree and then to the castle on the hill. The drawings got progressively smaller to show that they were farther away.
