Are your students learning about travel and/or Costa Rica? I developed this project as a way for students to plan a realistic trip to Costa Rica. Throughout this project, students will create a packing list, plan their itinerary for each day of the trip, and budget their expenditure allowance for a 10 day trip. All of the work is done in the target language and generally takes 3-4 eighty minute blocks.
I usually divide my classes into groups of 4 and assign roles such as accountant, activities director, etc. All hotels, restaurants, excursions, and other activities offered in the project are real places in Costa Rica. I have highlighted flight information and dates that should be updated each year for your convenience. My students absolutely love this project and feel very accomplished after they realize how much they were able to do completely in Spanish.
