Activity instructions:

  • A game board appears with Spanish words in one color and their English equivalents in a second color.
  • Students work in pairs. They take turns matching the Spanish and English vocabulary items as follows:
    • Each student chooses a color.
    • Student A clicks on a word in his chosen color.
    • Student B finds the corresponding word in his color and clicks on it.
    • If it matches, both squares become large red stars and student B challenges student A by clicking vocabulary item in his chosen color and student B tries to find the match.
    • Play continues until the entire board is covered with stars.
  • When the game is over, they switch languages and start a new game with the winner having the first color choice and the first turn.
