About Our Spanish Language Lesson Plans
Exploring how people impact the Earth – both the natural environment and our global family – is a must for today’s students. We live in an increasingly interdependent world where all of our actions matter. The choices today’s students make about the food they eat, the things they buy, the way they treat their neighbors, etc. – will have a collective imprint on the future. Inspire your students to make positive choices and take beneficial actions as they become tomorrow’s leaders, voters, and parents.
The “Our World, Our Future” activity guides are designed to cover themes of sustainability and global citizenship through hands-on, memorable classroom activities. The interdisciplinary nature of these topics makes the lessons appropriate for use in any of the core subject areas (science, social studies, math, and language arts).
Spanish is the second most common language on the planet and the first language of many students in the United States. The contents of the “Our World, Our Future” activity guides are available in both Spanish and English to provide teachers and students with maximum flexibility based on students’ proficiency in either or both languages.
