A great project to break up the routine!!
Teach students culture AND help them learn life skills related to planning a trip within a certain budget!
Mini-project for Spanish 2 and above (or can cut the journal part in Spanish and adapt for Spanish 1)
This project has 2 parts:
1) A step-by-step planning guide for students to fill out as they research plans for a trip to Spain. (airfare, hotel cost, restaurants, places to visit in each city, etc.)
2) A journal prompt with instructions for students to write an entry in a travel journal from one day of their trip
Also included - RUBRIC for grading!
I count this as two quiz grades (100 pts each), but you can adapt as needed.
It takes several days for students to research the information and complete the travel journal. I usually allow 3-4 days in class (50 min. periods), but you can adjust as needed.
