To become familiar with the way of life of Hispanic Americans today.
1 class period
In this lesson, students read through a series of 40 sentences about Hispanic Americans. Each statement contains a missing key word, name, or term. The first and last letters of each answer are given as clues.
In some cases, you may want to give the kids a chance to work with a partner on this. Another option is to make it a timed contest to see who is able to come up with the most correct answers by the end of the period or a time limit you set. The class can also be divided into two teams that compete in a game to identify the missing word, name, or term as you read through the sentences with them.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
