The Unfair Game® in Spanish | El Día de Acción de Gracias

Ready-to-play game featuring facts about Thanksgiving in Spanish!

Multi level

The game your students will love to hate! This ready-to-play game consists of 25 questions embedded in an interactive Slides presentation featuring questions about Thanksgiving in the USA - its history and facts about its celebration in modern times.

Learn more about The Unfair Game here!

As you display each question to your students, help them understand what it's asking! Contextualized answer choices for each question serve as an additional layer of comprehension support. Your class will play in two teams, and the interactive presentation will walk you through a series of decisions for teams to make on their turn to decide an answer choice and whether they want to keep or give away the points - before they even know if they are positive or negative! It's SO unfair!!

The 25 questions will be within reach of understanding for most Level 2 Spanish classes, especially for students that are accustomed to reading and listening to communicative Spanish in class. Many of the questions are also understandable for Level 1 students, and we have included a separate presentation with only some question choices available to make it easy for you to play with a Level 1 class that you think might not be able to understand ALL 25 the questions with ease.

  • My students always love the Unfair Game and this worked well on that last day before break when we have a lot of students gone.

  • This game is always fun for my classes, and is perfect for the day before a break once the unit is already done. Great way to keep students in the target language and provide a fun activity with a "trivia" feel!
