This is a fun worksheet to help students learn about cognates in Spanish. The two-sided worksheet has six separate sections. This worksheet is a great introduction to cognates.
The first section tells about cognates and the origins of Spanish and English.
The second section asks students to identify common food and animal cognates.
The third section has 6 pictures where four are cognates and two are not, students are asked to color in which words are cognates. The words that are not cognates are false cognates so the students really have to consider each picture.
The fourth section has students sort a group of 16 cognates by their suffixes.
The fifth section asks students to use the patterns identified in the prior section to translate English words into Spanish words.
The sixth section requires that student read sentences and identify which words in the sentences are cognates.
I made this product 100%, I used nobody else's background papers or clip-art. As I graduated art school to later become a Spanish teacher, I feel this is where I need to have my creative outlet. I hope you enjoy my work and welcome your feedback.
