In Round 1 students used Istation and the lessons were all from Istation online I didn't create the lessons.
However, my focus changed for Round 2 and this time there were more hands-on lessons.
Narrative Input Chart
This was the Narrative Input Chart I did the first week of the Cesar Chavez unit. In order to to this I photo copied certain pages of the book "Cosechando Esperanza" by Kathleen Krull. I then cut and pasted on the back of the pictures most of the actual story so that I read the back while all the students just got to see the pictures. For the background I just drew a field with the sunset in front of the class. After I finished reading each picture I taped it to the chart paper. Students were very engaged and interested in the story since I hadn't done a story like this before.
This was a flipped lesson plan I made for the students in the second week of the unit. I had them watch a video clip about Cesar Chavez's biography and they had to answer multiple choice questions along the way. I wasn't able to show the video the students watched, but this is the actual lesson plan I used.
This was a song students about Cesar Chavez that students learned. It's a song and in Spanish it's called "El Corrido de Cesar Chavez" I search for the song on line and printed the lyric and put them on a chart paper for students to see.
The following are samples of students biographies on Cesar Chavez
Big Book on Endangered Animals
I started off the second unit by reading the Big Book on Endangered Animals in English. I made the big book using the narration from OCDE Project GLAD and using pictures I searched for online.
These chants were also taken form OCDE Project Glad. I introduced the "Yes Ma'am" Chant the first week of the unit. The following week I introduced "Animals Here, Animals There" Chant. We alternated practicing the chants every day before lining up for lunch.

Animal Reports in Spanish
The last part of the second unit students worked on their animal reports in Spanish. They used the "Leopardo de la Nieve" Pictorial as a guide to what they needed to research about their own endangered animal. After their hand written Spanish animal report studnets had to create a google slide presentation of their animal report. I gave students the freedom of choosing either English or Spanish for their google slide presentation. Here are some samples of student work.
