Here is the domino I created to learn or revise the vocabulary learnt about the Spanish Civil War. (I used it with the resources shared under La Guerra Civil Lesson 2 - Fotos)
Do only cut the black lines, the blue lines are your domino! If not, you will have matching cards.
My lesson 1 of the topic was the Spanish History 1931-2014 lesson I've already shared.
Students really enjoy it and learn the Imperfect tense!
Activities created with real images of the Spanish civil war.
Match Pictures and Text. Then do listening to see how much can they remember.
I did this with Y9 as my second lesson on Spanish Civil War.
I did it using the domino already shared under La Guerra Civil Lesson 2-Domino.
Lesson 1 was the Spanish History 1931-2014 resource already shared.

This task develops students' ability to form simple descriptive sentences and to begin to ask a variety of questions. This resource forms part of a project looking at ways to encourage learners to interact more in the target language, developing the skills of both planned and unplanned (or spontaneous) talk.
It was designed with Y7 in mind, but with very little work could be differentiated for Y8, Y9 or even KS4 classes – this is because it’s the teacher questioning that sets the level of challenge.
Instructions for teachers are on the notes page of the PowerPoint slide.

Engage your students in a creative activity for practicing or reviewing past tense verbs: the old-fashioned game of dominoes…reimagined. This resource allows students to practice both the imperfecto and pretérito. The dominoes of the set have students identify verbs in the pretérito versus the imperfecto as well as their uses, match verbs with their meanings, or match similar verbs. The dominoes include: <br />
• Regular preterit: –ar, -er, and –ir verbs <br />
• Preterit verbs with an irregular stem: Andar, estar, tener, caber, haber, poder, poner, saber, hacer, querer, and venir <br />
• Irregular preterit verbs: ser, ir, dar, and hacer<br />
• Regular imperfect: –ar, -er, and –ir verbs <br />
• Irregular imperfect verbs: ser, ir, and ver <br />
• Verb meanings<br />
• Uses of the preterit vs. imperfect, specifically “a completed action,” “setting the scene,” “a continuous action in the past,” and “used to (habitual action in the past)” <br />
The verbs included are as follows: <br />
andar, caber, comer, dar, estar, haber, hablar, hacer, ir, poder, poner, querer, recibir, saber, ser, tener, venir, ver<br />
Authentic language? Check. Gets students speaking? Check. An element of fun? That, too. This resource engages students in the game of Battleship, allowing even beginners to communicate exclusively in Spanish. Players use numbers and letters to play--perfect to get beginning students speaking, listening, and understanding Spanish. Students play in pairs, which means everyone uses the language. Students are also exposed to authentic Spanish-speaking culture, since terms used come from the Spanish language version of the real game. This is a great info-gap activity to get beginning students speaking confidently.<br />
I use this resource in the first weeks of junior high and high school Spanish I, as soon as we've covered the alphabet and numbers. I love getting students speaking right from the beginning.
