Do your new Spanish students tell you they don’t know any Spanish? Show them they know more than they think they do with the super fun cognates activity!
Your students will be blown away when they realize they can not only understand the gist of a reading passage in Spanish, but they can also answer questions about what they read! This no-prep digital mystery picture has a comprehensible passage about the origin of tacos al pastor that is full of cognates. After students read the passage, they will type answers to 36 questions right there in the Google Sheet.
This mystery picture is included in my discounted Reading Comprehension Mystery Pic Mega Bundle. With the mega bundle, you save 20% on all my no-prep reading mystery pics, PLUS you get all future reading mystery pics I make FOR FREE! Click HERE to see it.
This Spanish 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!
Students love trying to guess what the picture is as they complete the activity. Hint: it has to do with the story!
