This unit is for a Spanish I-II level. (Can easily be made more difficult for upper levels, I have done it before!)
I usually spend 6-8 weeks on this travel unit, but it can be much more simple or even much more in depth. This unit covers:
Travel/ airport vocab.
Activities to research a place ticket, make a packing list, exchange dollars to pesos, talk about a future trip, talk about things you "have to" do, analyzing a passport in Spanish, role-playing through check-in and security at an airport, and culture through traveling for a week in Mexico City!
The kids LOVE this unit, and it really helps their basic communication skills. They pick up a good list of regular and irregular verbs in the present tense, they learn their question words, they speak using the future "going to," they talk about what they have to do using "tener que." and they pick up tons of vocab! I start my year off with this unit!
