When we went to Spain, we knew that our trip was going to be just in Barcelona, so I wanted to focus our studying on something that Barcelona is famous for: explorers.

We read lots of books about explorers and watched a few movies, like this one:
We worked lots on practicing our Spanish, using resources like this fantastic book/CD set:
I also print Spanish worksheets from these websites:
Besides learning about explorers and working on our Spanish, we also did a little bit of learning about Spain in general:
- The Spain pages from “Maps to Color and Learn“
There are several more printable worksheets about Spain on education.com HERE.
