Overview:

In this intermediate low to intermediate-high Spanish activity, upper-level Spanish students select a children's story to read to an elementary-aged classroom. After selecting their story students work in groups to create a lesson in which they teach 10-15 vocabulary words, read their chosen story, and lead the elementary children in a short activity based on the story. This activity assists students in achieving community standards by creating a community-wide event that promotes the target culture.
