This powerpoint is an introduction to the future tense and will work well for Spanish level 3 or Heritage Speakers students. The powerpoint can be used as enrichment to chapter 6 of realidades 3. (It is based on the grammar portion of this chapter). It is an introduction of the future tense and requires students' reflection of the Earth's present state and of its' future. On day one and two, it incorporates the theme of "Wall-e" (a Disney movie based in the future) with the trailer embedded in the powerpoint for you. I also recommend showing other clips from the movie, I recommend short clips from youtube in the notes section, or optionally you can buy the full movie in Spanish as a DVD on Amazon.com for $15.

This powerpoint includes teacher input and narrative and then requires students to reflect on the meanings found in the movie. It requires students to analyze the warnings that this movie presents to us about the future. The lesson will inspire students' creativity as they think about common problems (such as pollution, mass production, consumerism, etc) and about potential solutions. On day 3, students will make predictions about the future of the Earth and about their own future as well. The powerpoint has material for three full periods or class days. All instructions are included for teachers in the notes section of the powerpoint. Warm ups, partner and group activities, teacher narratives, and written assignments are all included in this powerpoint. It is fully in Spanish and includes 75 slides with all material embedded that a teacher will need.
