Prefer a digital version of the reading activities above? Check out these pixel art! Your Spanish students will improve their reading comprehension skills as they read a passage about Roberto Clemente, Gwen Ifill, Celia Cruz, and chef Govind Armstrong and answer a variety of questions about what they read in Google Sheets.

This Spanish pixel art activity is self-checking! If a student’s answer is correct, part of the hidden image will be revealed. If a student’s answer is incorrect, the picture will not change. That lets the student know he/she needs to try again. The instant feedback really helps students improve their skills! Students love trying to guess what the picture is as they complete the activity. Hint: It has to do with the reading passage!

There are two versions of the activity included in the file- one that is 100% in Spanish and one that is 100% in English. Perfect for differentiation or use with different levels! With one purchase, you’d be set for lesson/sub plans for Spanish 1-4. Buy it HERE.
