Level 2 students will be the event organizers, meeting the public, orienting them to our 'village' of countries and our museums and expos, teaching them some key language to use in the market place and being the translators and tour guides for the evening.Level 2 will also create a tapa bar for visitors to enjoy during the expo.
Level 1B students will be the core of the event, creating the world expo booths in our 'village' of Spanish and French speaking countries. 1B students will 'present information about their country as well as create food and souvenirs to 'sell' to the public.
Level 1A students will provide the 'backbone' of understanding the LMS World Expo for the public. 1A students will create the posters and hand guides and maps that will allow the public to 'tour' the expo and be able to speak in Spanish or French at the village market place.
Non-World Language students will also have the opportunity to participate through their classes. Where possible, teachers and students will explore the possible connections of other subject areas to Spanish and French culture. For example: Science uses many Latin words which are an integral part of the Spanish language. Math might connect through the metric system which is in use in Spanish and French speaking countries. Art might explore the style or media of Spanish or French artists. Social Studies classes might discuss cultural influence of the Spanish/French cultures on our culture. Computer classes will help create a website for the LMS World Expo. Music classes (band and choir) will perform at the LMS World Expo.
Any connections the classes discover have the chance to be displayed in the LMS World Expo 'museums' to show the Global Connections they discover. .
