#2. READING COMPREHENSION MYSTERY PICTURES
Want your Spanish students to learn about notable Hispanic Americans AND improve their reading comprehension skills? Check out these no-prep reading comprehension mystery pictures! Your Spanish students will improve their reading comprehension skills as they read a passage about Selena, Marc Anthony, or Roberto Clemente and answer a variety of questions about what they read.
These Spanish pixel art activities are self-checking Google Sheets! If a student’s answer is correct, part of the hidden picture 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 always has to do with the reading passage!
There are two versions of the activity included with each mystery pic below- one that is 100% in Spanish and one that has instructions, hints, and some questions 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.
