Update: 6/10/18: I have created a mini unit with this resource. Click here to purchase it on TPT.

We are just finishing up our Copa Mundial unit (on TPT) and it has been a big hit! Students have loved the music (seven new songs!), learned about la Copa Mundial, acquired a lot of language, and reflected on and analyzed so many cultural products, practices, and perspectives. It has been such a positive unit to end with my class of mostly seniors! And students were very engaged with the Digital Breakout that they did today (find it here as part of Nelly's resources).

But, I can't stop coming across amazing resources to use next time around (in the fall, because this unit doesn't have to be taught at World Cup time)! 

The most recent resource is this Gatorade commercial. It basically tells the life story of Lionel Messi. It is in English, so I made a slideshow and wrote the story in Spanish. I plan on developing some more activities to go along with it soon. Below is a sample of part of the slideshow. The entire slideshow (41 slides) with videos is included in my Copa Mundial unit (on TPT).


The end of the commercial is referring to this, when Messi scored a hat trick 
in the final qualifier for the 2018 Copa Mundial:
And to wrap it all up, you can have students dance and sing to this gem!
