I have been collecting resources for La Copa Mundial 2014 for almost a year on my Pinterest board…..and now it’s almost here. I’ve also followed the incredible Zachary Jones, as he has created activities for La Copa, and of course, the fantastic work of Kara Jacobs. I will be starting my World Cup unit in two weeks (really it is a unit on several World Cups and soccer in general), and have created a page on my wikispace with my essential questions (similar to Kara’s) and all of the resources now divided by category: essential questions, informal and formal assessments, videos to support the essential questions and soccer in general, focus songs, additional songs, and useful links to articles, infographics, etc. During the next two weeks, I will be creating activities and worksheets to go with my focus songs and the songs that I will be comparing/contrasting (such as the multiple versions of La Copa de Todos/The World is Ours and Shakira’s 2010 Waka Waka with her 2014 LaLaLa), and also for several of the videos that will support my essential questions. All of the activities that I will create will be posted on that wikipage as I finish them and get ready to use them. I’m really looking forward to sharing the excitement with my students, and I welcome any additional material you might like to share!
