El que sabe, sabe | Las celebraciones invernales

A whole-class game that is played in teams to learn facts about winter celebrations - all in Spanish! 

Multi level

Use this whole-class game, played in teams, to learn facts about different winter celebrations - all in Spanish! From Jewish to African American to Christian to Native American celebrations, these questions are written to help your students see connections between the various important days that fall in December.

This product includes 32 question cards, projectable questions, and detailed instructions to play "El que sabe, sabe" – a game of numbers and wagers that was developed by Nelly Hughes – in Spanish classes. About half of the questions are embedded in a projectable reading, making it easy to help your students understand the context for the information!

This game is played for a pre-determined amount of time (15-30 minutes recommended), getting through as many questions as time allows. The only supplies needed are printed game cards, a different colored dry erase marker for each team, and a personal-sized white board for each team.

The resource is a PDF download that links to a Google Drive folder that contains all of the materials.

  • This was perfect to use while my basketball players were all out for a tournament! All the kids thought we were just playing because we couldn't do anything "real" while so many were out of class. Jajajajaja!

  • Such a fun game! After playing the Thanksgiving version, I couldn't help but to buy this one too. Students like the no pressure of having to actually "know" the answers and the new facts they learned from the game was intriguing. A few students even went home and researched more about some of the events because they were so interesting!

  • My students and I LOVE the El que sabe, sabe games! They are so random that no one has an advantage. It is a great break from the normal routines and great for holidays.
