One of my favorite things about teaching Spanish is watching them explore the culture! From learning about Spanish-speaking countries to learning about famous artists around the world, studying history and culture is important for your students. A great option to teach your students about culture is through their own discovery of the different topics. Check out these research projects for Spanish class!
Why Use Research Projects?
These projects are great to fit in at different points of the year with your students, at any level! Exploratory classes can complete them in English, intermediate classes could research in English and record in Spanish, and upper level classes can research and present in Spanish!
The research projects can also be a great emergency sub plan. Keep them on hand in case you’re not feeling well one day and just need something to assign to your students so they can work independently with a sub supervising them.
Let’s explore these fun research projects for Spanish class!
