Spanish I: Passport Days

Mrs. Bianchi and Ms. Mittlemeir sent their Spanish I classes to Central and South America through virtual classroom tours. Each group was randomly assigned a Spanish-speaking country. The students used their Chromebooks to research and color the country's flag and create a detail map with the capital, cities, and geographical highlights. The students also did fact finding for their country to discover the population, size, holidays, foods, sports, weather, economy, and interesting facts. All of the information was then used to create a virtual tour with Google slides. The students played both the part of the travel agent and tourist during passport days. The highlight of visiting each country was sharing in the cultural experience. The students sampled foods and drinks, heard folktales, and learned songs and dances.
