IMPRESSIONISM
In this online exercise there is a warm up in which students have to match the paintings with the name of the correct artist. Then they have to arrange some letters taken from those names so as to discover the artist they are going to read. After those 2 warm up activities, students have to read so as to do the comprehension activities (true or false and then match the correct heading to the paragraph) Finally, students conjugate the verbs given placing them in the correct blank (this way enhancing comprehension and not just grammar rules). The last activity has to do with vocabulary. Students have to find certain words in the text by reading the definitions given. I hope you find it useful!!
