Copa Mundial: Preguntas

One of the five C’s from ACTFL is comparisons.  Using the World Cup, it would be easy to have a discussion about enthusiasm for the World Cup.  Do many of your students watch soccer?  Will they watch the World Cup?  What is a championship game that they watch which is similar to the World Cup?

For a warm-up, students respond to these statements.  Post them around the room, and have students sign the paper if they agree with the statement.  You can use these, or you can add your own:

Juego al futból.

Miro los deportes en la tele.

Miro futból.

Miro la Copa Mundial.

Miro el campeonato de béisbol en los EEUU.

Miro los Juegos Olímpicos.

Miro el Súper Tazón.

Miro el campeonato de baloncesto de las universidades en marzo.

Miro el campeonato de baloncesto de NBA.

Then students can think about these questions.  This could be done as a Venn Diagram, writing assignment or discussion.

¿Te gusta mirar futból en la tele?  ¿Por qué?

¿Cuáles deportes te gusta mirar?

¿Hay un partido en los EEUU que es similar a la Copa Mundial?  ¿Cuáles son las semejanzas y las diferencias?

¿Cuál es un campeonato que te sientes orgulloso de los EEUU?

Also, I was going to show this commercial to my students.  It is super easy to understand, and it uses many words that beginning students would know.  I even wrote a cloze activity to use during the commercial:

Anuncio: Copa Mundial

Está        azul      país         salta          gritamos       sangre          roja            campeones

 

 

España, rie, llora, ______________________________, canta, grita

España ruge

España ___________________________ en la calle,

No en la calle no

________________________ en el cielo

Y hoy el cielo fijados bien

No es __________________________, es rojo

Rojo como la ____________________________

Y desde ahí arriba ___________________________

Que hoy todos somos _____________________________ del mundo

Porque hoy más que nunca

Más que un equipo somos un _______________________________.

¡Vamos España!  Disfruta de la ________________________.  Tomate la vida con Cruzcampo.

…but then I looked up Cruzcampo.  It is a beer (for those of you that did not know!) I love showing commercials, but I do not want to use one that advertises beer to my middle school students during class time.  However, you may have a use for it, so I am posting it here in case you can.
