Get students excited about learning Spanish and build their confidence with this engaging, easy-to-grade digital mystery picture activity! Students will learn 40 cognates, and get a dose of culture, as they answer questions to reveal a picture of the famous tomato-throwing festival in Valencia, Spain called La Tomatina.
Best part? This no-prep Spanish pixel art activity is self-checking! 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! This picture is a great segway into a conversation about the neat tradition of La Tomatina!
