Welcome to Our School (¡Bienvenidos a nuestra escuela!)

How can we use our target language to help visitors learn about our school?

Project Description

Students work together to create a virtual, bilingual tour of their school. In teams, students identify the most important places in the school. They may choose to customize their tour for a specific audience (for example, new students, members of the larger community who speak the target language, or a pen-pal class from another country). In their tours of each space, students practice their “school” vocabulary and the present tense in basic forms by including information about activities that happen in that space and people who work there. Teams plan scripts and develop storyboards before producing the virtual tours.
