THEME: Global Challenges
CONTEXT: Environmental Issues
This year in Spanish 2, to accompany our CI unit on Mira Canion's Capibara con Botas, we studied Animals and Habitats of the World...and in particular animal extinction.
The article 5 especies en peligro de extinción was used as a formative interpretive reading assessment towards the beginning of the unit to introduce the issue, address new vocabulary words, and build background knowledge.
The second resource, Día mundial de los animales, is and infographic that was part of the summative assessment for the unit. To ensure this image was clear I also projected it onto my SmartBoard and students also had access to the image via their Chromebooks so they could magnify information if needed.
I love combining CI resources with Authentic Resources to really build student proficiency!
