5th Grade Animal Projects
To culminate their unit on animals, students in fifth grade completed an assignment called "Mi Mascota Nueva." (My New Pet). The students were asked to design their own pet and describe it (such as where it lives, how it moves, the name, what type of animal it is etc). They were then encouraged to continue their descriptions using as much Spanish as they could. We had discussions regarding writing organization and the benefits of adding details to their sentences. After their descriptions were written, we also took time in class to have conversations about their pet...all in Spanish of course! The results were incredible! This is the first class of students who have had Spanish since 1st grade. It was so much fun to read about their pets and see how much language they have acquired.
