The city unit is one of my favorites to teach – there are so many fun activities you can do! I recently created this free practice activity for en la ciudad so I wanted to share it with you today. You can print it and use it or you can post it digitally using Google Slides. Here’s a look at the free practice activity for en la ciudad and ways you can use it in your classroom!

Students can complete the maze individually as a warm-up or bell ringer. It is designed for students to work independently. They also tend to be self-checking as some answers are clearly dead ends and require students to re-trace their steps! This is great for critical thinking. Students can complete a maze that is a review, practice a concept we have been working on in class, or check up on an essential skill they need to revisit before we move on!
Maze games are truly a print and go (or post and go) resource! This makes them a perfect fit for an easy station or center activity. Several teachers have commented that they like using mazes for independent practice in station activities or learning centers.
Since maze practices are print and go, no-prep for you, they’re super nice to have on hand for fast finishers! Sometimes you just need something for a few extra minutes before the end of the bell, or for a student who finishes a ¡Corre en Círculos! activity quickly. They’re great for those awkward schedule days (pep rallies, assemblies, fire drills, etc.) when you don’t have time for a full lesson, but you still want students to be productive.
The best kind of homework is the kind that is self-correcting! Since students need to be reflective while they work through the mazes, this is great for a self-assessment or at home practice. It also makes a great option to include in your sub plans.
