This activity is a computer-based webquest in which students explore two different metro systems (Los Angeles and Mexico DF) through interactive maps. Students learn to give and receive directions for metro rides, and gain a familiarity with how to decipher a metro map, as well as using the direction of the line to indicate which way to go. Students write and read the mandato 'tu' form to accomplish the tasks. The quest is designed to give students an introduction to real-time knowledge that they will need when they take a metro in another country.
A second part of this webquest is reading comprehension. The interactive map of the DF metro allows students to click on a station to read about the historical significance of the name. The end of the quest has students read about three stations ans respond to questions about what they read. The free preview provides a heavily redacted version of the worksheets, and the links to the maps are provided in the worksheet. In addition, there is a rubric provided for the students to assess their directions.
This worksheet works great for any level of high school Spanish, and fits with Realidades 2 3b
