This product presents five endangered species from South America to students in easy to understand Spanish. The vocabulary is limited and presents basic descriptions of each species and one or two reasons for its endangered status. The animals featured include el ocelote, el oso hormiguero gigante, el perezoso de tres dedos, la vaquita marina, and la chinchilla de cola corta. First year Spanish students will likely be able to understand these readings with ease by the end of the first semester of Spanish.
Each description is written on a one-page worksheet with a very brief comprehension activity at the bottom.
