Here is a project that will allow your students to learn more about the language, geography, and ecology of another country as they plan an imaginary trip to another country.   This is not just spending a vacation on the beach.  It involves getting to know more about the flora, fauna, geography and people.

Un viaje de ecoturismo en Latinoamérica

    This project will provide you with an opportunity to learn more about  Latin America, its heritage, its environment, and about planning and organizing a trip outside the USA. 
*    You will work with at least one partner drawn at random, but no more     than two.
*    You need to research potential destinations for a two week eco-tourism experience in a Latin American country.
*    Your final product will be a video taped oral presentation in Spanish using a prepared outline in which you will discuss (not read) your findings and your plans for your trip.  The video tape will last a minimum of 10 minutes.  Video taping will be done during class time, but in a separate location.  See the taping schedule below.
