Spanish Sub Plans:  World Heritage Sites of Latin America
These Spanish sub plans can be carried out by any sub while you are out of the classroom. Even better, you won't have to feel guilty that your students aren't learning while you are gone!

This set includes 5 full classes of lessons based on various World Heritage Sites of Latin America. Each on is ready to print & go, requires no technology, do not require the sub to produce any Spanish, and can be differentiated for any level of Spanish class.

Each lesson walks students through important and interesting information related to a different UNESCO World Heritage Site and asks them to use higher-order thinking skills, problem solving, and critical thinking skills to understand the culture behind that site.

World Heritage Sites addressed in these lessons include:
-Lake Xochimilco (Mexico)
-Tikal National Park (Guatemala)
-Nazca Lines (Perú)
-Qhapaq Ñan & the Andean Road System (Various)
-Cueva de las Manos (Argentina)

Students will work step by step to learn about each site through a series of activities that ask them to use what they have learned and apply it to the present day, make cultural inferences about the purpose and origin of these sites, and compare these sites to their own culture and others. Each lesson asks students to think about the site in the larger cultural context as they make observations and consider some thought provoking questions.

QR codes are also included in many of the lessons (though not required to use) in case your students need extra support. The QR codes, when scanned, will take them to additional information that will help them complete the activities and understand the lesson.

These lessons are fully aligned with the ACTFL cultural competencies for world language learners and also can be used to address several of the culture themes found on the AP Spanish test.
