Las Fallas in Spanich class
When to do the Las Fallas unit & with what students?
What does the unit consist of?
Student Exploration of #Authres – Then students get to explore choice authentic resources with their Chromebooks. These include the resources & more. They will fill out their Graphic Organizer to report their findings. *Last year I added a digital graphic organizer, so all of this can be done digitally.

Discussion – We then come together and share our resources, discuss in Spanish, as well as go through the rest of the Google Slideshow, focusing on the specific parts of the events. We also watch some authentic videos of the event parts as well.
Optional Extension – Depending on time some years we have created mini cardboard or paper mache “ninots,” that could either be ceremoniously burned here or at home.
Optional Assessments – For assessments, I have done two different things depending on time and. We have done a basic free write, where students share as much as they can about Las Fallas, or I have a short authentic reading that students read and answer comprehension questions about.
