This is a big Spanish 1 project where students research a famous Latino and talk about him or her in the present tense.
The grammar and vocabulary structures are as follows: se llama, tiene ___ anos, es ___ (profesion), su cumpleanos es el, es de, vive en, tiene espos@ or es solter@, es ___ (tres caracteristicas), le gusta + infinitivo (x3), no le gusta + infinitivo (x2).
Included in this project are:
1) the project description
2) the essay requirements
3) the visual presentation requirements
4) a suggested timeline
5) the note sheet for carrying out the research
6) a suggested list of famous Latinas*
7) a peer-edit activity (2 sheets per page to save paper)
I have my students complete the essay and visual presentation in Google Drive, but of course they can be completed wherever you want.
This product is in a Word document that you can edit. I purposefully highlighted details in yellow that you may want to change.
*my class just researched famous Latinas this year and it was really successful!
