This activity is to be used when teaching the verb "estar" & location prepositions. Students will be required to know vocabulary dealing with directions such as "north, south, east, west, southwest, northwest, etc." and will need to know how to conjugate the verb estar. Students will be provided a map of New York City and all the different areas like Tribeca, Soho, Wall Street, etc. Students will be required to fill in the proper vocabulary to describe where an area is, in terms on geography (in Spanish.) Students will also need to read & comprehend true & false locations (correcting the false statements.) Finally, students will be given an area that is shown on the map and they will be required to construct a sentence giving a geographical description of that area, in Spanish. This is a great activity, even for those not familiar with the New York City area! This activity is a great assessment for both reading comprehension skills & writing skills, in the target language.
