IPA options (the teacher will tell you which one you are responsible for for this year)
Option one: Your dream house
Goal: Design your dream home (or just use the design of your current home) and create and ad to sell it.
1. Create a floor plan for your home. You can draw it by hand, use our paper rooms or use this program or this program to create a floor plan for your home. Your house must include: a) a minimum of two different floors plus a basement and attic -nall labeled in Spanish
b) a minimum of six different kinds of rooms (bedroom, bath, kitchen, living room, dining room, office, laundry room, furnace room, pantry, game room, etc.) - all labeled in Spanish
c) a minimum of two objects around the house (trees, patio, swimming pool, courts, fields, gardens, etc.) - all labeled in Spanish
2. Create an ad written in Spanish for your home to try and sell it. The ad can be a poster, video or flyer. The ad must include a description of the home that includes:
a) 1-3 ploy/marketing slogan that encourages the buyer to come/buy now/see it now, etc.) (See below for ex.)
b) general description of the house (size, number of floors, basic cost)
c) a description of each floor and what rooms are on which floors (and any special furniture in the roomsO
d) a list of the special features the house has that make it different (swimming pool, spa, game rooms, etc.)
e) where the house is and what is around it (with optional map)
f) a visual element(s) to enhance your written description (picture, floor plan, map)
g) Name and contact information of person/company selling house
The marketing ploy/phrase must encourage people to buy the house (and use the formal command form of the verb) . For ex: 'Your family will love the ... of the house!' or 'The location is ideal for ...' or 'Do you have a large family? Then...'
PRINT out the ad and turn it in.
3.) Read/View two ads for houses for sale and decide which one you would want to buy (or definitely not buy). Explain what you would want the house (or not want the house) and give three reasons.
Option two:House Chores
You and your sibling are left to take care of the house. Your parents have left you a list of things to do. Read the list. (vocabulary: chores and parts/rooms of a house)
You must decide what you want to do and what you are going to try and get your sibling to do. Talk to your 'sibling' and tell them what chore they should do from the list. If your sibling asks you to do something you are already willing to do, you will tell him thatyou are already doing it. (grammar: use of'command' form of the verb and use of present progressive form of the verb).
You will then write a note to your parents telling then what chores you are doing and what your sibling is doing. (vocabulary and grammar combined)
