  • Review the information with a fast game of Tic Tac Bingo. All materials provided!

DAY 2:

  • Review the previous day's learning about Bolivia.

  • Read and complete a paragraph about Bolivia with the correct possessive adjectives.

DAY 3:

  • Match statements about Bolivia in English to their meaning in Spanish!

These lesson plans are designed for Novice Spanish students in the first semester of Spanish 1.


  • My beginning Spanish college students enjoyed this resource a lot, even though it was challenging for them. It is genuinely engaging with great visuals.

  • I used this resource with my Spanish 2 students to quickly review possessive and introduce Bolivia. The text on the slides was a little challenging sometimes, but working in small groups, with a couple of slides per group turned this activity into a class group presentation on Bolivia.

  • This was a great tool for teaching possessive adjectives! The reading is engaging, and the presentation is both easy to use (for me) and easy to understand (for my students). I'm looking forward to using it again this year!

  • We used this in conjunction with the book El Ekeko, and it worked out really nicely. My kids were very engaged and interested in the legend, and found it completely crazy. Definitely recommend.

  • This is a fantastic unit! It was a great, comprehensive intro to possessive adjectives that also provided valuable cultural information. My students really enjoyed the activities.
