Semana Santa Webquest - SPANISH version
This three page webquest (written in English)
takes students on a journey to research the events and vocabulary of Semana Santa.
Students are mainly asked about the traditions in the processions in Spain but it does ask students to look at the Semana Santa traditions in other Spanish-speaking countries and compare/contrast. Questions range from basic information to making connections and educated guesses on the traditions.
Students also define the roles in the processions as well as the various materials and images throughout the procession.
A list of suggested websites to use is included
at the top of the webquest for students.
Although the webquest is in English, students can respond in Spanish.
Also, because this is in English, it can be utilized in other subject areas such as social studies or history! You can supplement this webquest with a Beautiful Semana Santa Photo Presentation
, sold separately.
An answer key is included.
Save money by purchasing a BUNDLE (sold separately) that also includes a beautifully-made Powerpoint presentation with my original photos from Granada, Spain: Semana Santa Webquest AND PowerPoint
. The professional-style photos depict the procession during Holy Saturday and label all of the vocabulary from the webquest within the presentation.
