Original Author: Claudia Leon, Elmwood Park
The Theme: House
Students will work in groups of 3-4.
Length: 1 month

Students will learn/ review/ practice vocabulary and verbs, for the house, in Spanish.

-Using a digital camera- students will take pictures of their house (one house chosen per group). Pictures of the outside and the inside must be taken. They must post pictures on a Newsletter / Flyer that they will create on Publisher. A brief description the pictures must be given under each one in the target language.

-Using a camcorder- Students will take a "tour" around the house, describing the house and house chores in Spanish. All members must speak and verbs must be conjugated correctly.

-An oral presentation summary must be given to the class in which the presenters will also be video-taped using the camcorder.

-A USB flash drive will be needed to place all the class projects on one computer rather than wasting time by having each group log on the computer.

-A projector will be utilized to show their video/ power-point/ publisher document on a larger scale using a white wall or screen.

-The final piece will be that the students will choose their favorite house to buy based on information given.
