This product contains 30 "Hoy en la historia" slides; one for each day of April.

Each slide describes four events: three events that happened on that day in history, and one event that is fictitious. All events are written in simple Spanish. Students should read all four events and then guess which one is the "Intruder"; the fictitious event.

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 fictitious).


  • A fun way to learn a little history and demonstrate preterit vs. imperfect.

  • My students love Hoy en la historia! They are asking if we can do this every month. I will be purchasing other months.

  • I LOVED this! My students really enjoyed this, too! It was amazing how much even my first year students could understand from the beginning!

  • We have been using this as our bellringer three times a week, I use for my in person students and for the ones that are virtual as well. I highly recommend it, we have very engaging conversations in the classroom because of this.

  • Wonderful resource. It helped my students practice reading the years aloud. I used the Question feature in Google Classroom to get students' input and hold them accountable for participating. At first they weren't into the activity, but they warmed up to it and began looking forward to finding out whether or not their guess was correct.
