PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Share Earth Day with your classes using this Spanish Reading Comprehension Activity. I created the activity for my Spanish classes but it can also be used effectively in bilingual and immersion classrooms.

Specifically, I created two versions of a half-page article (in Spanish) that describe Earth Day and NASA's invitation for people to submit photos of their favorite places.

Both versions of the article include five discussion / comprehension questions (Written in English). One version includes a bank of KEY WORDS to make the authentic text more accessible to readers of all levels. The second version does not have the word bank. Having two versions of the activity helps differentiate lesson according to the needs of your students.

On a separate page, I also created a word search that includes the key terms featured in the article. I left space to the right of the words so that the handout can be assigned as homework.

The idea is that, as an assignment prior to the lesson, students can research the words and write the translations or definitions beside the words. The word search can then be used as a warm-up, bell ringer, differentiation tool, or reward for students who finish the reading before their classmates.

Short articles with questions often allow me an ideal opportunity to teach reading comprehension strategies, the use of cognates, prediction, etc.

There is a second reading selection that asks students to read a Spanish-language summary of Earth Day and then transfer the knowledge / information to an English-language fill-in-the blank activity.

This second reading selection also comes with a word search of key terms in the summary. The key terms portion may be assigned for homework or as part of a pre-reading assignment.

These materials will also be a great addition to Spanish classrooms during units on the environment and they add a cross-curricular element as it's content relates to Natural Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, AP Environmental, and several other courses.

As an added bonus, I am also including two original photographs taken in Lima, Peru that can be printed and displayed in your classroom as cultural decoration.
