Product Description
Want a quick and easy way to teach your students about Three Kings Day traditions in Spanish-speaking countries? Try this fun and engaging Internet activity. With your download, you will receive a student activity sheet called “Busca en el Internet: El Día de los Tres Reyes Magos,” an answer key, a description of different ways I have used this activity in my classroom, and links for three YouTube videos to show in class to allow students to “see” what they have learned.

The student activity sheet contains twelve Spanish terms associated with Three Kings Day which students match with the English descriptions given. Students use the Internet to read about the different Spanish terms given and use what they learn to determine the correct answer choice.

While there are many Three Kings Day traditions and customs throughout the Spanish-speaking world, the following terms are used for this activity:

La Epifanía
La Víspera de Reyes
La Alameda
La Cabalgata de los Reyes
La rosca de reyes
El Día de la Candelaria
Melchor
Gaspar
Baltasar
El oro
El incienso
La mirra

I typically use this activity with Spanish I or II students, but because the answer choices are in English, it could be used in any subject area to expose students to holiday traditions different than their own. This activity is a great springboard for a discussion and future study on additional Three Kings Day traditions in the Spanish-speaking world or in any culture around the world.

Hope you enjoy and Feliz Día de los Reyes!
