Foreign travel is such an exciting part of teaching Spanish. If you've taught how to give directions this year, you will enjoy listening to your students practice those new skills in this Mexican context. Better teachers than I have had their students research and build simulated foreign cities from boxes and tape to provide a scene to practice getting around. If you don't have the time or space to do that, consider this file as an option.

This is the most detailed product I've put out to date. It displays an interactive map, like a tablet app or GPS, that allows you to trace a path from El Museo de Antropología to a variety of real locations in the Colonia Chapultepec Polanco in Mexico City. I have recreated a simplified version of the map so that you as the teacher can listen to correct directions from students, then track progress on the map just like a GPS!

Places they can visit include a major hotel, a restaurant, the US embassy, Chapultepec Castle, and others. If you've taught how to give directions, please take a look at this resource as a culturally rich method of demonstrating mastery of this critical skill for young travelers. Thanks for looking!
