Spanish learning games can be a great way to improve your Spanish skills and have fun at the same time!
Here are instructions and translations for a Spanish immersion treasure hunt you can do at home. It will improve Spanish vocabulary and reading comprehension while you search for the prize.
Step 1: Get several pieces of paper or index cards, and write down clues that lead to a specific place. For example, the first clue might direct your searchers to look in the refrigerator. Once they open the refrigerator door, they will find a clue that sends them to the sofa.
Step 2: Place your clues. To do this, take your clue cards and walk the route: set down clue 1, then walk to the location it directs you to and place clue 2, and on to the end of your hunt.
Step 3: Select a prize for the end of the hunt. It does not have to be anything fancy. You might want to have some stickers or an activity waiting, or have the hunt end at your car and take everyone to the park.
Step 4: Hand your students the first clue, and see how they do! If your students do not read yet – walk with them and read each clue for them as they find it.
Step 5: Enjoy the laughter as your team finds the prize!
