This product is an Immigration unit for Spanish 1. The two main components of the unit are the short PBS film "The Other Side" (in English, but the "story" is in Spanish) and the movie La Misma Luna.
Although this is a Spanish 1 unit, it could be used with any level because it is compelling and students will learn a lot about a complicated topic!
When you purchase this, you will get a unit packet that includes the following:
- Essential questions
- "I can" statements for the unit
- Links to a quiz and a test
- readings and activities for both movies
- a targeted vocabulary list
- a character list with descriptions for La Misma Luna (students have to fill in the missing words)
- a link to a song to use with the unit (ICE El Hielo by La Santa Cecilia)
- links to Quizlet activities and a textivate activity to practice summarizing the movie "La Misma Luna"
