This creative activity gets students practicing Spanish listening skills and drawing for comprehension. Instead of completing comprehension questions, students demonstrate understanding by listening to teacher-read descriptions and drawing what they hear. Also included are four extension activities that practice reading/written response, writing, listening, and speaking. Included are instructions for the activity and Extension Activities A-D, written descriptions for the original activity and Extension Activity C, and question sets for use with Extension Activities A and D (Extension Activity B is student-produced). The activity has written descriptions and question sets that go along with material learned in the textbook Así se dice’s Lecciones Preliminares, Capítulo 1, Capítulo 2, Capítulo 3, and Capítulo 4. The descriptions/questions are progressive and incorporate material learned in previous chapters to keep it fresh in students’ minds. If you do not use this textbook, the material is relevant for most beginning Spanish courses. See below for the topics covered in each description/question set. You can easily add descriptions and questions of your own to enhance and expand the activities.
