Hello and thank you for looking at Collecting Souvenirs by Completing Language Missions Around the World!
(******* If you have purchased the Spring Egg Hunt; Language Missions to Complete Around the World, please email me and I will send you the supplemental pages.)
This is not only fun, but a great educational journey around the world while learning new and exciting basic facts and coming home with materials to engage learning across settings.
The students’ mission is to travel to each country, beginning at the state of Alaska, to earn a souvenir for completing 10 language tasks in that country! Your students will meet up with two people from each country and they will learn vocabulary, traditions and about the culture through them, or the dialogue that is provided in the lesson!
Your students will be given directions to accomplish, vocabulary to learn and questions to respond to either verbally or through writing! There is a lot of variability here, as is with all of my lessons! Once the student completes the mission, they will receive a souvenir and add it to their passport.
The variability here is that, you do not have to do ALL thirteen stops on the journey. You can do a few, go back and do some more or do the entire lesson. As always feel free to expand on the lesson. Draw little highlight on the pictures! Add to the directions! You always can modify the lesson!
AND – it is up to you with whether or not you would like to print out a few copies, many copies for each student or photo copy it! (Please note, the adorable clip-art that I purchased for this lesson may have to be reinforced with a black pen on white / gray lines, as they do not photo copy as well as if you print them… however, I like you most likely, cannot print everything, so off to the photo copy machine I go. ) SO
***********************************PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU PHOTO COPY THE PICTURES, THE GRAYSCALE FROM THE CLIP-ART ARTIST IS VERY LIGHT. THE ART TEACER IN MY SCHOOL SAID TOLD ME TO LINE THE WHITE CLIP-ART PIECES LINED WITH GRAY OR EVEN MAKE THE SMILES AND IT WILL PRINT BEAUTIFULLY!!!
On the language missions, you will stop off at: Alaska (where the journey begins) then head to Japan, England, Egypt, Germany, France, Switzerland, India, Mexico, Greece, Australia, Netherlands and back home to the United States!
Again, when you take the adventure, your students will develop vocabulary, listen to information to answer questions about and perform necessary tasks (following directions) to complete the missions. Each country has 10 tasks for your students to complete in order to receive the souvenir for their passport! Every country has a dialogue with directions.

I additionally included a parent note that I like to send home explaining the events and activities of the week.
Also, I provided Common Core Alignment.
As always, if you have any questions or comments regarding this or any of my lessons, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
