Teach your students the names of food in Spanish using this fun activity with minimal prep! This activity works for all grade levels. For younger students, focus on coloring, cutting, gluing and practicing the food vocabulary. For older students, have them skip coloring and cutting and just draw their favorite foods and then have them focus on the verbal presentation. Super versatile and lots of fun.
Use the first page as a visual aid to review the names of food with your students. (The last page is an example.)
Print out the following pages on white cardstock or regular printer paper so that you have enough for each student. (Note: Food sheets are designed for cutting in half to save on paper.)
Have students decide which meal they are going to choose:
El Desayuno (breakfast)
El Almuerzo (lunch)
La Cena (dinner)
Then, have students color and cut out their favorite foods and paste them onto the place setting, (for older students, they may prefer to draw). Encourage students to label food names in Spanish including the names of each part of the place setting, (la servilleta, el tenedor, el plato, el cuchillo, la cuchara).
Finally, have students present their favorite meals to the rest of the class in Spanish!
- “Para el desayuno, mi comida favorita es…”
- ““Para la cena, me gusta comer…”
- “ Etc.
