This is a resource I have created for my GCSE students as there aren't much practice in the book or revision guides. It includes a vocab page and a workbook with 12 exercises (including reading, translation and a wordsearch).
Hope it helps.
Some resources here to support pupils with learning to speak and write about the environment in Spanish.
The resources scaffold oral and written answers and contain key vocabulary, grammatical structures and tenses and reading activities.
A video that I made for my year 8 group about the environment. It includes vocabulary on disasters, threats the environment and renewable and non renewable energy resources, the words appear on screen. I used it as a starter activity to gauge pupils interest. They had to write down as many words as they could remember. There are accompanying flashcards with this resource. :)
This pack contains resources I have made for high level y9 set doing the environment topic. Would also be suitable for foundation GCSE Spanish.
The pack contains several powerpoints, games, activities, worksheets.
Most should be quite comprehensive. Hope it is useful.
Contra el raton is a game that was found on tes and I have adapted it for the environment topic.
Photos and pictures have been taken from internet / other resources that I have adapted for my group.
A worksheet on the environment for (I)GCSE on the topic of the environment, using the past tense.
Pupils complete the verb practice table, do the gap-fill using the correct verbs and then have a writing task to do.
This resources has two parts.
1. A visual diagram of all the key environmental problems for pupils and a list of words in English to find in the text.
I use this for introducing the environment vocabulary to pupils.
2. A GCSE style reading comprehension on the environment. This followed by a vocabulary. There is a final written task that pupils can complete using the reading as a scaffold.
Very attractive and useful 12-slide PPT that teaches vocabulary related to the environment and the Imperative Form.
It contains plenty of exercises for students to remember the words and practice translation, reading comprehension and writing.
This resource is meant for Year 7 - Year 11 Spanish students. Students will learn what the environment is composed of, what is affecting the environment in the 21st century. They will learn to analyse the problems and so be able to show what they can do to preserve the environment in general as well as in their own region. This will help students understand the importance of looking after the environment so that they can preserve it for themselves and future generations. There are speaking and writing exercise to help students consolidate what they have learnt in the lesson.
A power point lesson using the phrases ‘se debe’ ‘hay que’ and ‘es necesario’ along with verbs and vocabualry for talking about the environment. Suitable mainly for KS3 or as an introduction for Foundation KS4 classes.
It does not follow and particular course book so is useful for those who create their own schemes of work and lessons.
I have added notes at the bottom of slides to give ideas as to how to use the resources.
