In this 73 page download, you get a ton of activities to teach your high school, middle school, or elementary class Spanish food words.
In this unit, you will get the following:
1. 21 focus food vocabulary words in Spanish with puzzle pieces. Have your students match the correct picture with the Spanish word. The following vocabulary words in Spanish are taught in the lesson:
el jugo de naranja
el sándwich de jamón y queso
2. Sentence un-scramble exercise to do on a computer (in computer lab) or cut and do as a hands-on exercise. See thumbnail picture or example.
3. Educational response game link. Students will play a game called Kahoot with any device (iPad, lap top, etc). Students will see an image and students will have four choices. Super fun, engaging, and competitive!
4. Jugo de naranja song lyrics, song and activity.
5. Graphing activity. Ask students, in Spanish or English, what they like to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Graph the results. Good way to incorporate math for lower levels!
6. My favorite activity! Make your own virtual (or paper) plate. You have the option of black and white pictures (if copying) or color pictures (if using a computer). Students pick 3-4 foods they eat during that meal. Great to display as a bulletin board!
7. Concept map. Test what students know about what the people of Costa Rica like to eat. Great visual!
8. Original Story written by me, Shawn Churchill, about a little rana, or frog and all the food he eat in Costa Rica. Great way to teach culture embedded in text. Story is in Spanish and Spanglish. In the Spanglish version, main food words are in Spanish and the rest is in English. All pictures in the book were taken in Costa Rica. Book is mainly in black and white for easy copying.
9. Virtual (or paper) plates of Costa Rican food they eat. Students can now COMPARE and CONTRAST how Americans/Costa Ricans eat. Great visual!
10. Rubric/Guidlines for a story book about food in Costa Rica. Students can create their own book. Great way to test for comprehension without an actual test!
This unit is great for a beginning level Spanish class or even a elementary, dual immersion, or English speaking elementary class. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me! Thanks so much!
