Let's learn Spanish! This introduction to the Spanish speaking countries and the Spanish language. As students explore maps of the Spanish-speaking countries, they will gain a sense of world geography and the location of the Spanish speaking countries. Using the knowledge of the Spanish speaking countries, students will begin forming simple Spanish sentences using es and son. They will learn to ask where people are from using ¿De dónde and ¿Quién(es) es (son). Learning about the countries and culture is another important aspect of learning the language. Students can take a virtual trip to one of the Spanish speaking countries and report back to their fellow classmates. Resources include a Lesson plan, PowerPoint, maps, song, worksheets, a webquest project on one Spanish speaking country, interactive activities, assessment, and resources. The duration of this unit depends on teachers discretion as they determine which resources they want to use and the time they wish to allot to this topic..
