This game will introduce your students to 9 famous Hispanic people from diverse career fields (Lionel Messi, Shakira, José Mujica, Rigoberta Menchú, Pope Francis, Sofía Mulánovich, Tommy Torres, and Franklin Chang Díaz). The information about each person is presented to students in Spanish and in question form, so that students have to guess the answer to each question about the people before the correct answer is revealed. Perfect for late Spanish 1 or early Spanish 2, it focuses on the phrases "fue el primer(o)", "fue el último", "su propio", and "nació". A vocabulary introduction activity is included to establish meaning for and familiarize your students with those terms. Detailed instructions for Grudgeball are included in addition to the 77 page slideshow in PDF and PPT formats. Lesson plans are also included.
