Use this three day mini-unit to teach your students about hurricanes in the Caribbean: why is it that they occur so often in that region, and how do they affect Caribbean life? Students in late Spanish 1 will be able to understand all readings.
The unit includes
-a one page reading worksheet that includes a reading in Spanish to introduce students to the topic and can be used as an activity or an assessment
-a 20 page reading slideshow in Spanish with pictures to further explore the topic
-a class discussion activity with math extension
-a song with lyrics activity
-an authentic reading with comprehension questions
-a whole-class game to review and reinforce learning
-an optional group discussion/speaking activity
-detailed lesson plans
-a slideshow in PDF and editable PPT format that contains all warm-ups and readings
I teach this unit as a follow-up to Unit 22 of the Somos curriculum for Spanish 1, Los Tres Cerditos. All major vocabulary for this cultural unit is pre-taught in the Los Tres Cerditos unit.

This unit works well as an addition to any weather unit or geographical unit about the Caribbean.
