This reading comprehension activity has students in groups rotating through stations around the room. Each station is a biography of a currently-famous celebrity, either Latino/a or with Latino heritage. Students read the biography, mark up the text, and respond to questions using the imperfecto in complete sentences.
This activity is good AP practice for Spanish 2 students, as the biographies are at a higher reading level, and the questions require some amount of inference from the students in order to answer the questions. It is a great cultural activity as well, as it gives information about the cultural heritage of famous musicians, artists, and athletes.
See preview for a quick sample of the questions. All of the five biographies are adapted from es.wikipedia, which is cited. There is a students worksheet provided.
OJO! I used the imperfect to make prompts about people who are still alive, asking where they used to work, and not knowing if they still work there. In two cases, I used the imperfect to ask where parents were from, even though they are still alive. You choice if you choose to modify the activity and use the present.
Great for Spanish 2 and 3, for students studying and practicing the imperfect. I use it for Realidades 2 4a
