Animals

Activity 1

Nieves, Lucía, Antonio and Marina have all gone on a trip to the zoo. Here, they’re showing us some animals. Watch the video a few times and then try saying them for yourself.

Here’s a table to help you, since there are quite a few!

Language in this activity

Once you’ve practised those, print off the activity sheet. You’ll need to watch the video again to complete the task on the sheet. If you don’t have a printer, just copy out and fill in the sheet on some paper.

Activity 2

Can you remember numbers from a few weeks ago? Well this activity sheet mixes numbers and animals! Print off the sheet and follow the instructions on there. If you don’t have a printer, you can draw your own animals and write the sentences on some paper.
