A Powerpoint of famous people (some Spanish-speaking, some not) from the past and the present that focuses students on describing people. Students read and talk about where people are from, what nationality they are, and what they are like. A great way to give context to teaching adjectives.
Follow up by having students research and write about a Spanish-speaking athlete, celebrity, artist, activist or comedian using what they have just practiced.
Both the Powerpoint and writing prompt are included.
