I had one more reader based unit to finish before I could wrap up the year with my Mar de plástico unit! I have been so excited to start!
Today we did the unit hook: how biodegradable is it? I brought a bag of “trash” and we sorted it out via 4 corners.
They used Spanish to categorize and argue why they felt an item belonged. In a particular category!
After we finished categorizing and I helped lead them to the correct answers, they created a graphic representation of their data.
When they finished, we hung their graphs in the hallway! It is fun to see other students (even those who don’t take Spanish) looking at them!
I also printed and prepped the Mar-mory game for tomorrow!
We will share as we go through the unit! Hope it helps as you do as well!
[…] My overall goal for the year is that students will be able to talk about the world around them. We have decided on Robo en la noche (past tense part). Our first trimester (after the graphic novel) will be about the environment. I definitely plan on picking up Carrie’s unit on Mar de plástico. […]
Hola I am using your amazing unit and incorporate this video after the 1 step in the plan before they jump to do their graphics. You are so creative so I am sharing it with you [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjlucM66jC4&w=560&h=315%5D
Thank you so much!
