My students really loved this project.
The inspiration for this activity actually came from the book, I was unsatisfied with all of the projects at the end of Realidades 2 7B. I also thought that my students needed some practice with (semi) spontaneous conversation. This was the solution I came up with- a picnic. This is a graphic organizer to help the students have conversations in Spanish for the entire class period. It continues with the picnic theme from the chapter, but also requires them to use some Spanish from their prior experience with the language.
Included is the graphic organizer and some notes and tips from my experience with this project.
