Overview:

This novice mid to novice high activity allows students to practice their Spanish numbers as well as adjectives while participating in a simulated auction. Students will use descriptive adjectives to persuade others to buy a product and make deals with others when purchasing their own items. Students will use numbers to bid on items and purchase them through an auction using provided fake money. There is a provided slide show that walks students through a pre-activity and post-activity as well as helping students connect this activity with "can do" statements.
