Spanish Cognate Human Bingo Get to Know you Activity
Spanish Cognate Human Bingo Get to Know You Activity - Help beginning students get to know their classmates and build confidence about learning Spanish with this fun ice-breaker cognate activity. They'll be reading, comprehending, and speaking Spanish right from the start! Each student mingles with a bingo grid and must ask classmates if the grid facts apply to them. The grids contain sentences such as toco un instrumento en la banda. There will be words that students don't know, but all squares contain easily recognizable cognates that will help students navigate meaning. When a student replies yes that a fact applies, the name is written in the box. When a student fills the entire grid, he says Bingo!

The download includes a follow-up written assignment. Students are to write what they think each sentence means and write the Spanish cognate for 6 clip art images.

This activity can also be used as a back to school refresher for continuing Spanish students.
