Students will love these engaging and fun reading, logic game and mask activities about Lucha Libre—Mexican professional wrestling! “Lucha libre” means “free-style fighting” in Spanish. While it's similar in some ways to other kinds of wrestling around the world, Lucha Libre is also unique. This activity pack is a great way to introduce students to an important, popular, and FUN element of Mexican contemporary culture!
First, students learn about Lucha Libre through a culturally authentic English language informational text. Comprehension questions follow the Lucha Libre reading. Next, students read the clues and use logic to solve the mask puzzle. Students can also create their own hero with the DIY Lucha Libre Hero activity, and then design and make masks to fit their own faces! Finally, there are five Lucha Libre mask coloring sheets.
