SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1: Central America

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1: Central America

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1 Central America - Reading Comprehension - Cut and paste Activity - Group Discussion - Poster Design & Creation - Writing Activity The following project pack contains 3 sections: 1. COUNTRY INFORMATION EXTRACTS 2. PICTURE ELEMENTS 3. POSTER TEMPLATES COUNTRY INFORMATION EXTRACTS are short texts containing information on the country in question. Students are to read each extracts and make notes of the important points as a reading comprehension activity. The PICTURE ELEMENTS have been specifically designed to portray information contained in the extracts. Students are then presented with the POSTER TEMPLATES, there is 1 poster template for each of the countries in question. Each template has 4 blank spaces each of which should contain a cutout of a picture element. Next to each space there are blank lines for a short paragraph to be written. An option would be to divide students into small groups and assigning a different central american country to each group. Within each group, students will discuss the main information points relevant to the country assigned, select 4 picture elements relevant to the country and together come up with 4 short paragraphs relating the picture to the country on the basis of what they have learned from the extract. This is a multi-level project activity as the length and complexity of the paragraph can be adjusted to the level of the students in questions. EXTENSION: This project can lead onto a bigger and more independent activity, where students go on to carry out their own research on the assigned country (in other words they create their own extracts) and proceed to nd suitable images or even their own drawings to create large posters. Ultimately they would have to produce short paragraphs relating their images/drawings to the information collected. Total no. of pages: 31

KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

Lesson Covers: How to describe your city (imaginary!) - what's in it and what it has e.g. my city has a king, watchtowers, walls and a dragon. This works best as a cover lesson. It is easy for non-specialists to follow but supports and challenges KS3 students of Spanish well. Could also be adapted for use in lessons by specialists in order to revise 'what's in one's city / town'. It is helpful, but not necessary, if the students have some knowledge of connectives, adjectives and SER / TENER in Spanish. Important key words are provided in each activity of lesson. Dictionaries needed. Lesson involves: Differentiated objectives and starter (quick translation) activity. Activity 1: Teams work to look up words (in Spanish) used to describe what's in a city e.g. murallas, atalayas etc. Next slide gives answers to students so they can write down whatever they were unable to find. Activity 2: Differentiated translation task using key vocabulary they have just looked up in teams. Key words provided as well as higher challenge. Next slide contains answers for peer / self-assessment. Main and final activity: students design and label their own city using key words / sentences they have been working on throughout lesson. Again, this is differentiated by task with key works provided on ppt. Bubble snake review to finish.

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 Spanish - La maquina del tiempo (AQA new spec)

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 Spanish - La maquina del tiempo (AQA new spec)

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 8 Spanish students. The writing example can be easily adapted if more structures are to be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about past or future events that they would like to visit if they were to have a time machine and create a poster or a set of notes. Students decide on the task and start researching relevant information using their iPads/ Chromebooks. At the same time they create a cardboard / paper time machine and produce a piece of writing as per model answer. In the end they stick their written notes / writing around the time machine (or attach it to their poster with researched information). The whole process takes about 2 lessons and is perfect for the end of the topic as you can incorporate all of the structures / vocabulary learned during the term! Note: the writing example is oriented on the working knowledge of conditional tense and related popular expressions. Please let me know if you have any other ideas on how this project can be implemented.If you still have some time left you can enjoy few games I have inserted to simply have fun during the (possibly) last lesson of the year.

Encuesta Cultural El Salvador / Cultural Research El Salvador

Encuesta Cultural El Salvador / Cultural Research El Salvador

A worksheet with some questions about El Salvador which I did with my Yr9 students studying Spanish when learning about Spanish speaking countries in the world. Students answered the questions in pairs and created a Powerpoint presentation which they then shared with the rest of the class. I have also attached the answers to the questions. Enjoy and don't forget to feedback :-)

LOS NUMEROS Y LOS MAYAS

LOS NUMEROS Y LOS MAYAS

Two lessons on Spanish numbers from 13 to 31 and a series of activities introducing the Maya culture and Mayan numerals. It includes a power point presentation, a worksheet with extensions for the medium/high ability and a simplified version for the low ability, plus three support sheets. Special attention has been put on improving cultural awareness of the Spanish speaking world, in line with the new GCSE specification. Learning Objectives: 1. Learn numbers in Spanish from 13 to 31. 2. Learn about the Maya Culture Success Criteria: * By the end of this lesson all students will be able to remember Spanish numbers from 13 to 20. * By the end of this lesson most students will be able to remember Spanish numbers from 21 to 30. * By the end of this lesson some students will have learnt some facts about the Maya civilisation. List of activities: 1. Mistake recognition task in which students have to find spelling, agreement and/or grammar mistakes on a set of five sentences. The slide includes a timer, some extra vocabulary for support and its is differentiated by outcome (ALL must complete 1-3, MOST will complete 1-4 and SOME will complete 1-5 in the time given: between 5'-10'). This task is to be peer-assessed: grade and target. 2. Presentation of numbers from 13 to 30. Teacher to elicit three patterns (i.e. "Dieci" + number 1-9). 3. Listening task. Teacher to read/spell the names of five individuals and to state their ages. Revision of the Spanish alphabet. Teacher to elicit the pattern for numbers from 31-39 ("Treinta y" + number 1-9). This task is to be self-assessed. 4. Oral Practice ("¿Qué número es?"). Teacher to check pupil's understanding (no "hands-up"). 5. Vocabulary Matching-Up. This task is to be completed in groups of 3 or more. Teacher to elicit cognate recognition. 6. Short presentation of the Maya Culture in the TL (CLIL), followed by a matching up of new words and pictures. 7. Dictionary task, followed by word classification (noun, verb and adjective). This task is to be completed in pairs. Praise points to be awarded to the couple that finishes first. 8. Fill-in the gaps exercise, recycling all vocabulary from tasks 5-7. It could be executed as a listening task, as I have inserted in the presentation a clip from the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Ciudad de México (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZGxQAO8FLQ) 9. Presentation on Mayan numerals. Students are provided with a section of a Maya Codex and have to find as many numbers as they can spot. 10. AfL Exercise: Students to reflect on their own learning. Follow-up: Students should be encouraged to develop their own research on the Maya culture, either individually or in groups.
