Use this poster to practice vocabulary related to the family members. This activity can be used for your school, homeschool, or digital class.


1. Ask your students these questions in Spanish while pointing at the photos:

-¿Quién es esta persona?

-¿Quién crees que está representando este hombre, mujer, niño o niña en la familia?

-¿Quién crees que sea esta mujer?

-¿Quién crees que sea esta niña?

-¿Quién crees que sea esta niño? etc.

2. If you work the activity virtually, ask your students to circle the person you mention with a digital marker. For example, circle the grandpa (Encierra el abuelo ).
