This set includes 4 postcards written by Maria about 4 of Spain's great, historic cities: Segovia, Valencia, Granada, and Málaga. Students learn about Spanish culture as they translate the postcards from Spanish to English. They'll discover the treasures of these cities, including cathedrals, a Roman aqueduct, fabulous markets, La Malagueta bullfight arena, La Alhambra, La Alcazaba, la Ciudad de Artes y Ciencias, and much more. The postcards include descriptions about weather, famous monuments, 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. It's also a great activity to use during Hispanic Heritage Month!
Each postcard includes the picture side with images of the city and the writing side.
The postcards can be used as follows:
1. Homework assignment
2. In class partner or small group activity - students love to compete to be the first to finish the translations!
3. Project on the Smart Board and translate as a large group activity
4. Substitute lesson plan
