Students locate family members in Italian with either definite or indefinite articles and put the corresponding number in the correct square. The articles that are practiced in this magic square are: uno, un, una, alcuni, alcune, il, la, i, le. Once they have located all phrases and every square has a number in it, they sum up the numbers. If the numbers equal to 34 horizontally, vertically and diagonally in all rows, everything is correct. If they don't, they have to find the error and correct it so that the numbers equal to 34. My students love solving magic squares, it's fun, yet challenging enough, and self-correcting. It's also the homework that your student will actually WANT to do! Enjoy!
