These slides can be used as a Brain Break tournament, a Bellringer, a Bulletin Board, or Free Reading material for your classes.

An answer key is included for each slide (a slide that reveals which event is erroneous.

  • I love that these serve many purposes. The use of cognates makes them very comprehensible. They are also a good introduction to/means to practice the preterit and sometimes imperfect tenses. And of course, some interesting historical events are presented. I will continue to purchase each month's

  • What I LOVE about this resource is that it incorporates so many parts of the language: review of numbers in random order, cognates, applicable vocabulary. cross-curricular studies, etc. Also, my students look forward to this!!!! I will be using this resource repeatedly! Thank you, Martina, for creating this! So worth the cost!
