This exciting lesson includes two Word Searches & Cross Word Puzzle. It is an amazing tool to teach vocabulary words to students using cognates and a hint word to let them know what the search is about. Have students compete for a homework pass in the older grades. This is a great activity for the month of May to celebrate "Cinco de Mayo" in your class. Highlight the cognate words. I used it in grades 2-6 during the last ten minutes of class. It is a great transition activity. It satisfies Communication Standard and Holidays.
English Word Search and Spanish Word Search- Both searches have key words associated wih the history of Cinco de Mayo and as many cognates as possible. your stduents will delight in doing both and proceed with the Cross Word Puzzle.
The Cross Word Puzzle can be an excellent challenge for the class. Have students use their dictionary and the vocabulary words from the Word Search to complete it. It is an amazing exercise in word recognition, building vocabulary. Have students work in small groups and compete for a homework pass.
FELIZ CINCO DE MAYO
