Reading written in past tense tells the interesting story of Presley, one of the few remaining blue Spix Macaws and a veterinarian's attempt to return him to his native Brazil. Presley's story inspired the movie Rio.

This 2-page beautifully formatted in past tense Spanish reading would work well for a Spanish 2 or 3 class and is an excellent accompaniment for the movie Rio or the reader Robo en la noche published by Fluency Matters.

Includes a sheet with 15 comprehension questions (with answer key), a link to an online quiz, a timeline/drawing activity/fact-finding activity to help students process the text.
