Huellas 1.1 Bajo la mesa

The Huellas Curriculum for Intermediate learners

Intermediate (Levels 2-4)
Google Drive, PDF
65 Pages

Dive in with us to a movie talk (clip chat) based around an amazing song and music video. Bajo la mesa is the perfect way to get your students into a chat about art and artists. It provides opportunities for students to learn to describe things in detail (an amazing AP skill). With suggested grammar topics, vocabulary, and a full face to face and remote lesson plan, this is a unit you can use as-is to save two weeks of planning!

This unit of study is unit 1.1 of Somewhere to Share's Huellas curriculum for Intermediate students. It can also be used as a stand alone unit.

This product contains:

  • Bajo la mesa by Morat and Sebastián Yatra as the song of the week
  • Cloze activities with and without English, with and without word bank
  • A movie talk and follow up to get input of the target structures
  • Two listening activities to dig deeper into the song lyrics
  • Readings about the importance of art and art museums
  • Lesson plans for 8 days of face to face learning and up to 13 days of virtual or hybrid learning
  • A printable (or digital) reader with biographies of the artists whose work is featured in the video
  • My students really like the song this is based around and the cultural tie-in with all the artwork is great. I also love the idea of the Imit-arte project. I haven't done that piece with a group yet but I am looking forward to it.

  • This unit is so well put together and very engaging. All of my students love it, especially my native students. For some reason this is always their favorite unit.

  • What's not to love about classic art and Morat?? Students found this fun and it was great to pair up with the art teacher at my high school as well. Across the curriculum learning!

  • I love the resources from Huellas! This one is great because I love incorporating art into my world language class. The discussion questions, biographies and pieces of art are so well tied together. It's a great resource!

  • The music video was impressive to my students and the lessons organized around it were engaging and just the right amount of challenge.
