Hi! I teach Spanish 1 to 5th-8th graders. Since we pack so much info into semester 1, I found that sometimes it’s good to do a bit of review in semester 2. I designed a group project for my 8th graders that would allow them to review material from the first semester, as we continue to move forward and gain new skills and info in semester 2. I always think it’s beneficial for students to “think like a teacher” and they seem to enjoy working as a group!
I’ve included the schedule that I used with my students last year as an example (page 3), as well as a template for you to create your own topics/dates (4).
Page 5 is a planning worksheet that they can use to help them organize their ideas.
I copied pages 6-7 front and back to give to the students, so that they could have the rubric beforehand and indicate what part they contributed. On the day that they presented they gave the rubric back to me so that I could score their project.
