Building on what students have learned about landmarks in a community (e.g. la escuela, el hospital, la farmacía), students in this lesson begin to explore professions and occupations in the U.S. and in Costa Rica.
This handout is a collection of authentic excerpts describing some of the occupations/professions that the students will discuss in this unit: el bombero, la policía, la bibliotecaria, el doctor/ la doctora, el dentista, la maestra y el maestro.
This Powerpoint has photos with Spanish captions of people in some of the professions/occupations used in this lesson. The photos may be useful for making flash cards, bulletin boards, or in classroom discussions and presentations.
