Celebraciones en España / Celebrations in Spain
for high school Spanish levels 3H/4/AP/IB
by Sherie Gentilli
I created a Glogster project for my IB students to end celebrations unit of Relaciones Sociales. We already studied Christmas, New Years, and Holy Week...and I wanted them to research one more holiday independently.
The PDF that you purchase contains the project requirements, with the link to the digital, interactive Glogster file. Within the Glogster file, there is another link to a PDF which provides photos and links to research 11 other celebrations in Spain. The students are required to choose ONE that suits their interests, use the provided links to complete research, and explain/summarize the holiday by creating their own Glogster project. A few examples of the included holidays are: Corpus Christi, Feria de Abril, Las Fallas, La Tomatina, San Fermín, and Carnaval.
I require my students to present their Glogs, so that the class can learn a little about the ten other holidays that they did not research.
Please note: students must sign up for their own Glogster account to complete this project. I signed up for the free version, and have my students do the same. Upgrades are available.
I like Glogster because it lets the students demonstrate their creativity...options are endless on this site! Enjoy!
