This is a simple board game designed to practice identifying family members and pets in Spanish.
There are two different versions, one with the members of the family and the other with pets.
Students must name the picture in the square they fall on, e.g. “Es la madre. / Es un gato.”
There is also a blank version for the students to fill in with words and/or drawing and create their own personalized board game.
Print on A3 paper or cardboard and laminate.
You will need counters and dice.
The students take turns to throw the dice and move the counters. On each square they fall, they must construct and say out loud the word that names the picture.
If they fall on the goose, they must say the magic formula “De oca a oca y tiro por que me toca”, and then they can advance to the next goose and throw the dice a second time.
If they fall on Vuelve a la salida, they must go back to the start.
If they fall on Pierdes un turno, they must miss their next turn.
The first player to get to* Llegada* wins.
The ideal number of players is 2, so print as many copies as you need. If there are more than 4 players, the children will get bored waiting for their turn and they will not have enough speaking practice to make the activity meaningful from the point of view of language learning.
