Spanish Task Cards – Los colores en español

32 multiple choice task cards to the names of colors in Spanish.

A picture of a color appears on each task card and students have to choose the correct name for it from the four alternatives given. They then must write their answer on their answer sheet (or give its name orally if you prefer in one-on-one classes).

There are three types of pictures:

  1. a circle with one color (12 cards)
  2. a circle divided in half with two colors (8 cards)
  3. a cartoon or picture of something typically of one color (12 cards)

Note that we have included two versions of these task cards due to regional differences in the names of some of the colors.

One set (version 1) includes purpura, marrón and naranja, while the other set (version 2) will include morado, café and anaranjado. You can also mix and match cards from each set as the task card numbers and corresponding colors/pictures are the same.

NOTE: The versions are only different with a change of wording (the word marrón being replaced by the word café).

There is an answer sheet for students as well as an answer key where students can check their own answers if these task cards are used as part of a literary center or as time fillers.

IMPORTANT: These task cards, including instructions, are 100% in Spanish making it ideal for language immersion classrooms.
