This is an assignment packet and rubric for a project on a Spanish-Speaking country. The assignment is for students to research a SS country and create a poster for it in the shape of something that is representative of the country (i.e an animal typical of the country, a food, musical instrument, etc.). I personally don't allow them to do the shape of the country or flag - this pushes them to really think about each country individually.
First page details assignment and then the following pages the research is divided into days so students are not overwhelmed with not knowing where to start.
Links to sites for each country: Please note that sites are constantly being updated and often close down. I do my best to keep this list up to date.
