In this project students are to prepare a quick lesson on how to do an activity (how to tie your shoe, how to play lacrosse, etc). Students will tell their classmates in a presentation how to do their activity showing props. Students should include positive and negative commands in the Tú form.
Spanish class students can’t go through Spanish class without making at least one video as a project. This one utilizes the theme of food (La Comida) as the basis of the video. Students can choose a location and let their creative juices run wild. Other students love watching their classmates videos!
This assignment can be given once a term to students. The point of it is for students to be practicing their Spanish outside of class. Students earn a certain amount a points by doing the following activities:
- Communication: with a fluent Spanish speaker
- Reading: native texts
- Listening: movies, music, etc.
- Culture: go to restaurant, make piñata, etc.
Everything is explained in great detail on the sheet. Students use this same paper as their log to fill out what they are doing, how long they did it for, and a brief summary of what happened. My students have always looked forward to doing this every year. It is a great way to get them using the language outside of class!
This Spanish Culture Presentation Rubric is a great way to teach Spanish speaking countries culture. When Spanish teachers usually give cultural presentation projects they will assign each student a different Spanish speaking country, then they will present on very superficial or general topics about the country. In this assignment, the class will vote on a Spanish speaking country and then each student will be given a different category (35+ to choose from; listed on the rubric) to present on. That way the class will learn very much in depth on one single country rather than touching the surface on many different ones. When the class decides on a country, each student owns their category and becomes excited to teach it.
NOTE: There is a grading section on the rubric titled “Class Contribution” where students can earn points for. This part of the project gives the students the opportunity to summarize their research down to 1-2 sentences and add it to the large poster paper that the teacher as prepared. This poster paper should have each student’s category and a blank space next to it to allow them to fill it in. The poster is to be displayed in the classroom throughout the unit. Students can also post a picture of their category on the paper. Once students have filled it all in, all can see the hard work they’ve put in
In this Spanish Menu Project, students are the owners of a restaurant and are to create a menu completely in Spanish. Students must include different categories of food in Spanish, the prices and a brief description in Spanish about their restaurant. Students can then present their menu to the class.
This Spanish Show and Tell Project Rubric is designed to help students talk about themselves. For every sentence they say about themselves by either using GUSTA or SOY they will show an object (Just like Show and Tell). Includes grading rubric to help you give students a score.
