A must have game for your environmental unit. Simple instructions, minimal teacher preparation and cooperative learning at it’s best. This fast-paced game will have hearts pumping, foreheads sweating and students speaking and using their environmental terminology. Play this game after you have introduced your environmental unit and activities. El Juego de Combate Ambiental will provide an exciting, alternative practice activity that uses and reuses vocabulary and expressions of global ecology. Where is your sense of adventure? Yes, the title is intimidating, however in the spirit of cooperation, you will find that this really is a game of “Ecology Friendship” or “Global Harmony”.
Object of the game: Circle the correct vocabulary expression before your opponent finds it. The vocabulary game page image is projected onto the whiteboard or smartboard and players use a colored marker to circle a designated word. Teams at their seats, have their references and also have a better view of the board than the two competing players and communicate their vocabulary and instructions in Spanish. As students play they will become more and more comfortable with their environmental expressions and vocabulary.

It is all about the strategy of setting up games. Maestra Mapache Creations games are designed for your classes of 15 or classes of 35 and come with a comprehensive set of game play regulations. Students need a brain break from time to time and an alternative activity in which they utilize the new vocabulary that they have learned and that encourages active participation by non-gamers. You will love the atmosphere because the teams will provide a supportive role and be busy looking up vocabulary and giving instructions in Spanish while two players are at the board.
As always, Maestra Mapache has first created these activities and used in her own classroom. Secondly these activities are designed to be adaptable to any of your lesson units and the vocabulary has been prepared with terminology to allow the teacher flexibility in lesson preparation. Every effort has been made to ensure that all vocabulary is common usage however since language evolves rapidly, please share your feedback and suggestions for newer expressions. Followers will be notified of periodic vocabulary updates.
The "Game of Environmental Combat" can be used as a stand-alone activity however, as an additional reference tool you may prefer to supplement with Maestra Mapache Creations Environmental Vocabulary Thematic Reference. This reference was designed to provide a foundation for the majority of common vocabulary that students will encounter throughout the course of any related unit. Maestra Mapache Creations has coordinated these collections of vocabulary, dialogues, worksheets and images to be your versatile tool for both verbal and written activities. Enhance your current curriculum units and put valuable time back in your hands.
