GCSE SPANISH - Home, town, neighbourhood and region - COLOUR MATCH

GCSE SPANISH - Home, town, neighbourhood and region - COLOUR MATCH

This is a colour match exercise to practise vocabulary from the AQA syllabus. Students find a pair which mean the same, in English and Spanish. They then colour them the same colour. If they run out of colours they could use stripes, spots etc. If you are short on time they could number the boxes instead of colouring them in. The second sheet is for students to fill in the words as they find them and then to use as a vocab list. This is useful for a starter, a cover lesson or a homework

Spanish my town my region vocabulary extension writing/ mi pueblo mi región vocabulario

Spanish my town my region vocabulary extension writing/ mi pueblo mi región vocabulario

These activities will encourage pupils to use more challenging vocabulary when describing their town or region. There is a slide with some stretching GCSE vocabulary and pupils must first find some specific items before undertaking some translation. This activity will expose pupils to more sophisticated language and nicely scaffold their own spoken or written description of their town.
