Activity Overview

A common activity in Spanish class is for students to create a family tree. A great way to get them started is with a family map. Using stock characters as a before activity, students can fill out this character map to get in the habit of using the vocabulary of family members, descriptions, likes, dislikes, age, and gender. Having them fill out this information prior to completing their family tree engages the student, aiding in accurate language acquisition. Students could also choose to complete a family tree project using the storyboard creator. With the upload images feature in the toolbar, they can add pictures of their family members!
