8th Básico talk about Juvenile Detention Around the World!


Holes by Loius Sachar

Stanley Yelnats was given a choice. The judge said, "You may go to jail, or you may go to Camp Green Lake." Stanley was from a poor family. He had never been to camp before.

And so, Stanley Yelnats seems set to serve an easy sentence, which is only fair because he is as innocent as you or me. But Stanley is not going where he thinks he is. Camp Green Lake is like no other camp anywhere. It is a bizarre, almost otherworldly place that has no lake and nothing that is green. Nor is it a camp, at least not the kind of camp kids look forward to in the summertime. It is a place that once held "the largest lake in Texas," but today it is only a scorching desert wasteland, dotted with countless holes dug by the boys who live at the camp.


Juvenile Detention
8th básico students have started their oral presentations on various juvenile detention systems around the world. This research was done in order to comprehend what the main character of the book “Holes” by Louis Sachar experienced while staying at Camp Green Lake. We will learn about the laws and about the type of correctional facilities available for underage delinquents in countries like USA, Australia, UK, chile, germany, and others.
