This product contains the biographies of five strong female athletes that have made an impact in the world of sports. The biographies are written for students with a novice high level of proficiency.

Each of the biographies discuss how these women have influenced their individual sport. Second year Spanish students will be able to understand these readings with ease by the spring semester, if not before. These biographies could also be a great warm up activity for third year students, a great addition to your Sports unit, or, if laminated, could be an addition to your FVR library.
