"Una en un Millón" and Spanish Food Vocabulary
These activities are meant to help students learn vocabulary related to food items in Spanish.

These activities go along with the song "Una en un Millón" by Jesse y Joy. This song is readily available on YouTube and iTunes and a link to the song is referenced. These activities may be completed without the music video, so please make sure that the video is appropriate for your students before playing it.

Students will begin by reading a brief biography, in Spanish, of the artist.

Students will then listen to the song "Una en un Millón" and attempt to fill in some common Spanish food vocabulary words that are missing from the lyrics of the song.

Next students will be asked to find several lines of the song based on their English meanings. They will then manipulate those lyrics to include additional food vocabulary while working off the structure of the identified lyrics.

Finally, there is a writing / interpersonal speaking activity in which students comment, in Spanish, about how they like various foods (with mustard, without tomato, etc) and exchange information with a classmate.
