Extra vocabulary practice for the sports vocabulary (musculoso, la red, La Copa Mundial, etc.) This crossword coincides with Chapter 2.1 of the Avancemos Spanish 2 Textbook.
I use this in my class to provide students with practice within a context. Students have to write the words twice, in the clues and in the puzzle. By writing in the puzzle, they are able to check and make sure they are spelling the words correctly. By writing on the clue sheet they are getting twice the spelling practice and it makes it easier to check the answers. When we go over the answers, I have students translate the sentences out loud for a comprehension check. Completing the crossword and reviewing the answers usually takes 30-45 minutes.
