This is a CLOZE notes activity of the actor, Jack Black, doing a promo for the film Kung Fu Panda, in Spanish! Appropriate for Spanish 1.

This listening activity can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on whether you supplement it with extension activities.
Here is how I do it in its simplest form:
1. Pass out the handout. Instruct students that they will write their answers directly on the handout or on a piece of binder paper. You will have the real answers on a clipboard, away from student view.
2. The handout has a word bank of the answers. Ahead of time, copy and paste this into a PowerPoint slide so the class can see it. I then call on students to give me the definition of the answers until everything is defined. This is a good time to reinforce grammar and ask/answer follow-up questions.
3. Instruct students that you will play the video 3 times in total. Students should be following along with their finger on the words, listening and writing in answers. After each round of listening, stop and call on students for answers (I write these on a side whiteboard).
