What educators are saying

Your products are always amazing & high quality. A perfect addition for a unit on art and human rights. ¡Mil gracias!
I am choosing to use this for my AP students for the Belleza y Estética theme and the subtheme of artes y visuales. This is an awesome resource with a great reading and activities!


Suitable for Spanish 3 and up, this mini-unit will take anywhere from 3-5 days depending on how much discussion you include. Personally, I created this for Spanish 4 and my unit on the Spanish Civil War. This would also make a fantastic base for a thematic exam.

This unit includes:

*Detailed unit plan

*List of links for further research or exploration and resources

*Art vocabulary / online game suggestions

*Advance organizer activity for brainstorming about the painting

*Guernica in pairs, small groups, and individually

*2 page reading “El Bombardeo de Guernica” with comprehension questions and answer key.

*2 page reading “El Cuadro Guernica.”

*3 page reading “Los personajes y objetos de Guernica” with crossword puzzle and answer key.

*Activity in which students connect ANOTHER painting to a modern song "Jueves" and tie all knowledge together in a creative writing piece. Includes illustrated song lyrics and writing prompt sheet. Perfect summative assessment for this mini-unit!

*Slideshow highlighting the individual components of the painting Guernica
