What is Taco Tuesday?

This is a quick and simple game that gets students (or family members) competing to identify VERY BASIC Spanish vocabulary words. Give each pair or small group one game sheet, and watch them compete to find the correct TACO!

The "teacher" can describe vocabulary words in either English or Spanish, and players race to find the TACO that contains the correct word on the paper that they share.

With a different color pencil/marker, the player who finds the word first colors in the taco. At the end of the activity, they evaluate which player identified the most words.

Students LOVE this quick game because of how competitive it gets! It is a game that allows 100% target language use in a simple and straightforward way. Give your students the chance to be the teacher at home, and have some fun during this stressful time of distance learning!
