This set includes 4 postcards written by Maria about 4 of Spain's great, historic cities: Madrid, Barcelona, Toledo, and Sevilla. Students learn about Spanish culture while they translate them from Spanish to English. They'll discover the treasures of these cities, such as the Prado, El Retiro Park, La Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Parque de Maria Luisa, Spain's great artists such as Velazquez, Picasso, El Greco, Gaudi, Miro, Goya, Madrid's Plaza Mayor, and much more. The postcards include descriptions about clothing, weather, scenery, leisure activities, food, and more. Your students will enjoy following Maria on her travels through Spain and will be pleased with their abilities to work through and comprehend the readings. Use the postcards as a culmination of a city / travel unit or for back to school review for upper level students.
Each postcard includes the picture side with images of the city and the writing side.
