Overview - The purpose of this country is to learn about clothing and accessories, practicing how spanish works with nouns (masculine vs. feminine, single vs. plural).

Country 5 - Peru: Activities
Overview - The purpose of this country is to learn all about things we do every day - verbs. This is the most important unit of the year because every sentence has a verb in it, and how we treat verbs in Spanish is different than how we treat them in English. After this unit, you're going to be feeling pretty awesome about how well you communicate!

Overview - The purpose of this country is to use our new verb vocabulary and learn about jobs and careers. We'll learn about what different activities are required for different jobs, and grammatically we'll learn how to put two verbs together. This will be a nice preview for 8th grade Spanish.
