Picture this… The World Cup has come to your city and you are a soccer super fan!  You want to tell the world all about your favorite team and its country of origin.  Our Spanish II classes are becoming soccer “super fans” and utilizing the present tense and adjective agreement to describe their countries.  Students even get decked out in “virtual” face paint!  Students must replicate their country’s flag, and answer the following questions in the target language.  Students then video their oral narratives wearing fan “face paint” in the colors of their nation’s flag by integrating the photo filter application “Nissan Die Hard Fan”.
