Language and Culture are interrelated and this PowerPoint is a great way to combine the two as you teach the verb ser and how to describe others.
I created this PowerPoint for use in the first thematic unit of my Spanish 1 classes where students are learning to describe themselves and others.
This download contains 15 slides with 12 original photos that I took during my travels to Ciudad de Guatemala, Guadalajara, Mexico, and Lima, Peru.
As you present the slides, have students describe the people in the photos using adjectives from the unit. [Example] "Ella es trabajadora".
Not only will your students get valuable oral practice from the activity, there are also so many teachable moments that are culture-based. [Example] What are the people doing? How do their activities compare to the same ones where you live? What's going on in the background? How are the people dressed?
This PowerPoint has several important uses for your class.
1. Bell ringer / Warm-up
2. Fun Friday cultural presentation
3. Collaboration / Team building activity as students share their observations
4. Images for use as oral and writing prompts.
