Hello Catherine! One very successful thing I did when I substitute taught a few weeks ago in a class with a lot of Mexican students was I brought up a Mexican newspaper online. (The Mexican students gasped to see something from their country in their own language!). I then asked a few of them to read aloud and translate the first few paragraphs of an article for us. Since it was actually also Mother's Day in Mexico on that day there happened to be a fascinating article on attempts by the government to have women wait til they were at least 23 years old before having their first child! This led to one of the Mexican students, a girl, telling us that her mother just had her SIXTH child a few days ago and had started having children when she was 15! Fascinating experience!
Hope this helps!
