This 40+ page EDITABLE Caras Conocidas lesson and video activity are excellent ways to introduce famous Hispanics/Latinos in your level 2 through advanced Spanish classes! There is an original video that features 25 notable Spanish speakers such as Cesar Chavez, Pablo Picasso, Enrique Iglesias, Rey Felipe and Reina Letizia, Lionel Messi, Papa Francisco, Sonia Sotomayor, Juanes, Jaime Escalante, Roberto Clemente, Rafa Nadal, Fernando Botero, Shakira, Don Omar, Che, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Alberto Pujols, Eva Peron, Selena Quintanilla, and more!


This lesson is versatile and can be used to build reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills while using it as a game or as daily cultural warm-ups.

Included with this product:

~ There is a paragraph in Spanish for each famous Spanish speaker that may be read aloud or silently by the students or the teacher.

~ There are printable images of each of the famous people that students can use to hold up as they are guessing who is being described by their classmate or teacher.

~ There are comprehension and extension questions that may be used as a means of assessing student learning or to spark a lively class discussion about these notable Spanish speakers.

(Answer key included!)

~ There is a beautiful original video that highlights these notable Spanish speakers.

~ There are step-by-step instructions for the teacher or for a substitute that include additional activities and videos (55+ video links are included).

~ A practice for the Presentational speaking section of the AP Spanish Language Exam - Heroes theme

This Caras Conocidas activity may be played as a guessing game. The teacher shows the video of all 25 notable people (video is included on our website) and then distributes the faces and individual paragraphs with the names cut out. The students can then play a guessing game as the descriptions are read in front of the class.

Teachers may instead choose to highlight one or two famous Spanish speakers each day as a warm-up. This activity is perfect for the day before a holiday break or it may be used to complement a heroes unit.

Have a wonderful school year!
