Love super fun, no prep digital activities? If so, then you will love this preterite sandal verbs mystery picture! Your Spanish students will get a ton of practice with sandal verbs, and a dose of culture, as they answer a variety of questions in Google Sheets. Best part? Pixel art activities are self-checking! If a student’s answer is correct, part of the hidden picture of a famous moai statue on Easter Island 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! They love mystery pictures and so will you!
