Spanish Sub Plans:  World Heritage Sites of Latin America

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.

Spanish Vocabulary Sorting Activities

Spanish Vocabulary Sorting Activities

30 different sorting activities (enough to use roughly once a week during the school year) to help Spanish students make connections between words, brainstorm for writing, or practice new vocabulary. Their versatility, ease of use, and the fact that they differentiate themselves make them one of my favorite things to use in my own classroom! Each activity contains 4 different categories which students must complete with words that they know and fit each category. These are a quick, easy way for students to recycle vocabulary that they have previously learned or integrate vocabulary they are currently studying. They can also be used to gauge a student's progress in acquiring language when compared over the school year and they differentiate themselves! These work well as a class starter or closing activity. Once students have completed an activity, it is easy to use their work as a jumping off point for writing tasks or inspiration for oral drill and conversation. Use them when you need a sub plan and ask students to write a paragraph or sentences as a follow up activity! These are low prep and ready to print and go! You can even skip the print step and just display them for students! This is the Spanish Language Version. An English Language Version is also available in my store.

GIANT Spanish Culturopoly Board Game

GIANT Spanish Culturopoly Board Game

The second of our GIANT Board Games, Culturopoly focuses on teaching students about the important people, products, and places of the countries of Mexico, Spain, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Cuba, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Venezuela. This is a great whole-class game that transforms the floor of your classroom into a giant board game. With a style of game play similar to Monopoly, students travel around the game board collecting cultural facts about the various countries. Once they gather enough facts, if they land on a "maleta" space, they can answer some trivia questions about a particular country in order to earn a "boleto de ida y vuelta". The team with the most "boletos" at the end end of the game wins. The best part of this game is that it is easily adaptable to any age group and proficiency level. With three different difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, Hard), it is perfect for an exploratory or Latin American Studies class all the way through an upper level Spanish class. While the Easy mode allows for students with no knowledge of Spanish, the Medium mode starts to introduce target language terms for students with minimal Spanish language proficiency, and the Hard mode focuses on play completely in the target language. This is a great way to review for culture portions of midterm or final exams, or for any day that you just need something different. In the future, there will be expansion packs to add different Spanish-speaking countries to the game. Either way, any teacher will get a LOT of use out of this one game. This Resource Includes: -Complete Set-up and Game Play Instructions for each mode -Fifty 8 1/2 x 11 Game Spaces with pictures representative of cultural items -12 Boletos de Ida y Vuelta (one per country) -12 Easy Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -12 Medium Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -12 Hard Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -36 Culture Fact Cards
