    I’ve seen this commercial several times, and dug up the link to use as a Listening activity – have them check off or write down the different street foods mentioned (no visual at first), then let them see it. The “wrap-up” could be having them say which street food they would prefer to eat with a Coca-Cola.

    Hi! I am just now wrapping up the Comparing Breakfasts of the World Unit with my 8th graders. I’m thinking about immediately following it with the “Street Food” Unit. Do you think that would feel like too much of the same to students? The breakfast unit went well, and I’m looking to cover the food topic as thoroughly as I can because I know this is an important part of the Spanish I curriculum everything. I notice some of the activities between the units are similar, like looking at restaurant reviews, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, right? And I assume we could move through some lessons faster, like ordering…

      Not a bad thing at all. We’ve purposely planned units to go side by side if you want a fuller dive into a specific theme OR to be taught each year so you can revisit the same topic with a new twist. (If you were doing this again in the future, I’d plan to do COMIDA CALLEJERA first though. Desayunos is a bit more challenging (using some past tense, touching on subjunctive, etc.).

    Hola. I’m looking into using this amazing resource but have a question. When you sign up, do you actually get a presentation to show? Or is it shown off the website just like this example? Some of the “slides” are too big to fit my screen. Thank you!

    • Kara Parker

      Hello Shane! The lessons will look exactly like this when you are a member. So you will scroll through the page. That way we can embed videos and links plus do some pretty neat things with the formats. If they are too big, you can adjust your screen on your internet browser. It depends on which browser you use, but usually there’s a “View” tab. You’ll want to set that to 100% or actual size. Also the shortcut keys are ctrl+ and ctrl- or command + and command – on a Mac if you want to adjust more. Also it helps to have your screen full size/full screen if possible. Of course if there’s one that doesn’t fit after all of that, leave a comment on that lesson. As website updates happen, it’s possible some formatting gets wonky. If you need more tips, send us an email with your type of computer and internet browser. Happy teaching!!

    I taught this unit last year and both I and my students LOVED it! I’m excited to see that you add lessons from StoveTeam! I can’t wait to use these lessons this year! ¡Gracias!

    • Kara Parker

      Thanks, Nicole. StoveTeam has been great to collaborate with! Are you going to do a live chat with them?

  7. Kara Parker

    forget to look in the lessons! There are more downloads in those that are not on the main page.

    HI I am about to start this unit do you have any suggestions on which lesson should I start with?

    • Megan Smith

      We put them in order of how we would teach them.(empanadas, tacos, other street foods, etc.) Some lessons tend to build on previous material. However, you can jump around or teach them in any order you want!
      *Note: the objective sheet usually matches the order of the lessons on the unit page.

      Let us know how it goes after you teach it!

    • Megan Smith

      Nice of you to share! Thanks!
