New (free) Unit: Puebla y Barcelona

The starting point of this new unit is a story based on the song "Puebla" by Álvaro Soler... so it sure to be a hit! From that story, which incorporates Barcelona and Puebla, students will go on to learn about Barcelona and Puebla, delving into authentic resources, related to food, travel, architecture, and a legend... all also very engaging! See below (or here) for the Essential Questions, Enduring Understandings, "I can" statements, and possible evaluations. 

If you don't want the whole unit, you might just want to use the story and the song. Click here to access the unit. Feel free to make a copy and adapt it to your needs! If you find this useful (or anything else that I share for free on my blog) consider supporting my work on Patreon.
