This 20 page Spanish NFL Professional Football Warm-Up Game will motivate your students to use Spanish while trying to guess answers about their favorite football teams. This game includes an interesting cultural reading that compares/contrasts the importance of football in the US with the role soccer plays throughout the rest of the world. This cultural reading activity also has assessment questions that can be used to test students' comprehension or to spark an interesting class discussion. In addition, this fun game has questions, student answer sheets, answer keys, and a master list of all of the teams and their cities and mascots in Spanish. This game also includes several daily warm-ups that will get Spanish students or native speakers reading, listening, and thinking in Spanish right from the start of class. This game also goes along perfectly with a sports unit or teachers can play this game to get everyone excited about the Super Tazon. This football game is a great way for students to practice their language skills in a fun and meaningful way.
This game has football-related clues about all of the NFL teams, the cities in which they play, and their mascots. These clues are divided into six separate days (with a master list included for the teacher) along with two tie breaking questions. Each day, five clues are placed on the screen for a set amount of time (If the teacher prefers, he/she can read the clues while the students guess). During this time, the students may use their dictionaries to figure out the clues, but they may not share answers! The students can write their answers on their game papers (included) which have all of the NFL teams and their cities listed at the top in Spanish. Even students who are not football fans can easily guess the teams based on descriptions of mascots and cities the teams are from. After the time limit, the teacher shares the correct answers so the students can see how many they guessed correctly. At the end of six days, the student(s) with the most correct answers receive(s) a prize of your choice! This is the perfect game to complement a sports unit or to encourage excitement before the Super Bowl!
Also included is an article in Spanish comparing the differences between soccer (futbol) and football (futbol americano). This article includes useful vocabulary and several comprehension questions. It is a great activity to do before starting the Fantastic Football Warm-Up Game!
