"Ecuaciones con palabras" is an engaging, hands-on activity that will help your students practice Spanish vocabulary, develop their critical thinking skills, and increase their ability to circumlocute by encouraging them to think about the relationships between words!!! Students are given forty-five words which they must arrange into ”equations” that logically describe the relationships between them. For example, they could write “fruta + amarillo = plátano”, because a banana is a yellow fruit. After students have created their equations, they write a sentence explaining why each one is valid.
This activity works best if you print and cut the words so your students can manipulate them. However, I've also included a low-prep version of the activity, that only needs to be printed!
This product includes:
❊ List of 45 travel-themed words with cutting lines
❊ Student answer sheet
❊ Answer key with one possible solution and sample justification sentences
❊ Low-prep version of the activity — no cutting required!
❊ Two pages of teacher instructions and suggestions
Vocabulary: Los viajes | Travel & Vacations
Reinforce vocabulary, practice writing, and most importantly, have fun!
