Students love these cooperative learning, hands on vocabulary puzzles!
With this activity, they'll practice 18 colors and patterns as they assemble a 4 x 4 Spanish/English vocabulary puzzle. All common colors are included, plus plateado, and dorado, and there are 4 different ways to say brown (de café, pardo, moreno, and castaño). Patterns included are de rayas, de cuadros, and de lunares. Also included are claro and oscuro. There are 23 different words all together. The puzzle contains a list of all words alongside it that can be used as a student reference or bookmark.
Also included is a page of tips and suggestions for using the puzzles.
Most words are repeated at least once which makes the puzzle more challenging. Just photocopy enough for class sets (1 for every 2 students if working in pairs, or 1 per student if working alone), cut and fasten with a paper clip. Distribute to students and challenge them to reassemble the puzzles as quickly as possible.
The puzzles are great to use for introducing and reviewing vocabulary, and they're also helpful for sub lessons.
After students assemble the puzzles, they can use the vocabulary lists to quiz each other on the vocabulary.
