The 6th graders shared clothing items that they like with me via a google slides project. On each slide, they had to include the indefinite article, the clothing or accessory, and the color labeled in Spanish, a picture of the item(s), and the price using Spanish numbers in euros. The alternative project was a poster project. I have attached an example of each.
