Everything we do in the Spanish classroom should be infused with culture, but that can be hard to do when we teach grammar. This Power Point allows you to teach the verb IR in the context of the country of Mexico. With 70+ colorful photos, your students' interest will be held by the contrasts of the land - the city, the countryside, the people, the food, and the natural beauty.
And they will learn how and when to use the verb IR while they are enjoying the virtual trip to Mexico. Animated slides show the conjugations and show the proper contexts to use the verb - talking about destinations and future actions.
Two printable pages are included for students to fill out while they watch, or afterwards for practice. They can be taken up for a grade or kept in their notebook to study.
In addition to the animated grammar explanations, the following photo themes are included: comparison of modern and traditional Mexico, Aztec ruins, handicrafts, tourism, and food. I also use pictures from Mexico to show off the different grammar examples, so students are surrounded by the culture as they learn.
Why Mexico? Because it is a culture that is often misunderstood because of stereotypes and tourism, and because it is important to give an authentic view of Mexico. You will be able to give your students something unexpected and very out of the ordinary with this slide show and you don't have to feel guilty about teaching grammar!
