I always wondered why we teach students to talk about hamburgers and french fries in Spanish class! :)
I decided I needed to teach my students that not all Spanish speakers eat jalapenos and tacos. :) I started with this powerpoint.
The ¿Te gustaría comer…? powerpoint presents 7 different traditional dishes from the Spanish-speaking world and their main ingredients: Tortilla espanola, Enchiladas, Mofongo, Causa, Gallo Pinto, Arroz con leche y Flan. (I know - there are sooooo many more!!)
The powerpoint requires students to practice Spanish while expanding their cultural knowledge as well!
Students learn how to state whether or not they think they would like the dish, based on its main ingredients.
I also use this activity as an introduction to a “recipe research” project, which can be as advanced or as introductory as you like.
Students tend to love learning about new foods and even preparing them for their classmates to try!
Check out the preview for a better idea!
