Hispanic Heritage Month | 21 personas de herencia hispana

21 simple biographies with true/false statements

Beginner (Level 1), Novice (Levels 1-2)
Google Drive

This product features 21 public figures in the US that are of Hispanic origins. This product includes some biographies from our original set of biographies, some from our second set of biographies, and some new ones. Unlike those two sets, this product is designed to create DIGITAL assignments for your students.

Each biography describes the name, profession, and nationality/ethnicity of a public figure. It appears on a Slide along with 3-4 True/False statements. Both the biographies and the True/False statements are written in simple Spanish, and with the help of a Key Vocabulary slide at the beginning of the resource, even students at the beginning of Level 1 should be able to interpret the texts. With the Slide in Editing mode, students mark each statement as true or false using draggable icons.

  • Used these, one each day in second year classes, during Hispanic Heritage Month. Great way to review basic personal information
