The start of school is fast approaching for me (I realize that many of you might already be back to school). I wrote about how I wanted to try out using a digital breakout game with my AP classes as a team-building/icebreaker type of experience at the start of the year, likely during one of the first days of class. So I created the "Atrapada" breakout that I shared on here. I decided to also create one for my 9th graders. Most have been taking Spanish weekly in elementary school and then as a regular class in 6th through 8th grade. The proficiency target for that group is Intermediate Low.
I wanted to have something light and fun to work through while they got to know their classmates (we have two middle schools that send students to my high school, plus some upperclassmen can end up in the class if they had transferred in from somewhere else). I love Gente de Zona & Marc Anthony, so I decided to make a breakout based on the song "La Gozadera" because it is so catchy and mentions the countries of Latin America. So, here is a link to the site to play the game. Let me know what you think. I hope you can use it with your classes!
