This is the PPT (editable) version of my Día de los Muertos "mini proyectos" if you would like the un-editable version (PDF, $1.99, please see my store or click here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Choice-board-independent-discovery-Dia-de-los-Muertos-Day-of-the-Dead-2166348 ) :)
Use these mini projects to let students take control of their own learning and pursue what interests them. Multiple intelligences and learning modalities are addressed to accommodate all learners and differentiate instruction in your Spanish or bilingual classroom!
Let your students develop 21st century technology and discovery learning research skills as they explore an ancient tradition and its modern expressions. Include whatever tasks you want in this fully editable version! Change it for a different topic or holiday or use it as a performance assessment.
We used this after creating a KWL chart as a class (Know, Want to know, Learned) about Day of the Dead in Mexico and Central America.
Students must select as many activities as you assign. As they complete them, they show you their choice board and their completed assignment. You then initial or stamp each completed box.
Works great for shortened periods, too.
We took about 3 days on these projects, but you could easily assign more or less to change the duration.
We used our school's mobile iPad cart, but students could use smart phones, laptops, or desktop computers as well.
Let your students teach themselves with this fun, festive, and engaging bilingual Spanish-English cultural activity.
Great for beginner or intermediate Spanish students. Can be adapted for advanced.
