Unit Plan

Brooke Leeder
Grade 2 Spanish Bilingual

With the 12 year Spanish bilingual program in mind, the following unit has been designed for a grade 2 Spanish class 3-4 times
a week with 19 students. Students are still fairly new to the Spanish language with limited exposure. It is important to expose
students to the language as much as possible, use gestures and images to simplify instruction.
This unit is designed to provide students with the opportunity to explore a new culture of the Spanish-speaking world. It is
composed of Chilean activities to promote communication amongst students at a beginners level. The goal of this unit is to
help students gain a perspective of a new culture in comparison to their own. We will start off the unit learning where Chile is,
what it is near, and its elements. We will then move on to the history of the Mapuche people. In detail we will explore
influential people, traditional games, music, dances, artists and food. We will wrap up this unit with a Chilean celebration tying
in all of the cultural elements studied in the previous weeks. There are a wide variety of modalities that students can use to
express their understanding. Students will practice the four skills in a variety of activities to gain Spanish experience.
