Preterite Tense Boxed Sentences

Combine art and writing to strengthen your pupils' understanding of the preterite and Spanish vocabulary. Class members divide one sheet of paper into 10 boxes. They write a complete sentence using the preterite and draw and color a related picture in each box. Great as a way to break up the monotony of fill-in-the-blank worksheets, as a homework assignment, or as an activity to assign when you have a sub.
