This is a lesson for beginner to intermediate Spanish learners and is presented in English. The file comes with a customizable powerpoint presentation and student handout that prompts students to fill in blanks as you are presenting the material. I use this as the first lesson of the year in my classroom to give students a better understanding of the language they are about to acquire.
The student handout has a section of common phrases used in Spanish class and is used as a Do Now activity. The handout also contains 3 activities that prompt students to answer questions via interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational communication. Students will put themselves in Columbus' shoes as they write about what their experience discovering the New World might have been like. There is a QR code that connects students to a video giving further information on the history of the language.
The powerpoint contains an objective, and 6 slides that give insight into the birth of the language, the transatlantic spread of the language, and the Columbian Exchange.
