This Editable Google mini-unit bundle includes materials for a 2-3 day cultural unit in Spanish about Las Fallas, a celebration in Spain in the Spring. This Spanish cultural unit includes authentic resources, a graphic organizer, an editable Google slideshow, an optional reading assessment, and ideas for expansion. This Las Fallas unit would be best for late Spanish 1, Spanish 2, or Spanish 3 students.

  • Directions to the teacher for 2-3 days of plans for Spanish
  • ✅ Editable Google slideshow to guide instruction (with embedded song, videos & authentic resources linked)

  • ✅ Optional reading assessment (both print, 2 Google forms & self-checking EASEL versions)
  • + bonus Breakout EDU created by Susann Shultz

The Google Slides & digital graphic organizer could be assigned on Google Classroom as a sub-plan or for independent work during distance learning. *Make sure to make a copy first and then you can share it on your LMS making a copy for each student. Or use the EASEL graphic organizer as another option.

Las Fallas Spanish unit is especially relevant in mid-March, when it takes place.

You must have Internet and Youtube access for videos, sites, and authentic resources.

When to do this Las Fallas unit?

This mini cultural unit has become a regular part of my Spanish 1 or 2 in March. It is a great short unit to do around Spring Break, state testing, a short conference week, or just any time you need a little break from your regular curriculum grind. Depending on how much time you have, it could be as short as just a one-day cultural exploration, or as long as a few-day mini-unit. It would also be great as an end-of-the-year mini-unit.
