Thanks to my brilliant young colleague from Mexico, Diana Martínez, here's a ¡BUSQUEMOS EL TESORO ESCONDIDO! game that concentrates on verbs like GUSTAR.
This resource works both as a teacher-directed activity and as a small group game. Even reluctant learners will be motivated to listen carefully and the promise of “treasure” generates enthusiastic oral participation as well. After the oral treasure hunt, assign a handful of co-ordinates for instant written conjugation practice.
The answer keys are in the present and past tenses but the game can be played in virtually every verb tense.
Please note that we have opted to use Mexican Spanish wherever possible.
