Much like everyone’s favorite The Lucky Reading Game, The Lucky Trivia Game incorporates reading and luck, paired with some fascinating facts about the Spanish speaking world.
Working together in teams, students read a trivia fact and make their best guess:
Once all the teams show their guesses, the correct answer is revealed and each correct team draws a card to earn points:
Then, together as a team, students read some additional information. The teacher randomly selects one student to earn a bonus card, if she or he can translate the additional information into English:
The Lucky Trivia Games are written with novices in mind…but each Trivia fact comes with an authentic video and extension activities for further exploration or to challenge intermediate students:

Dear Senora Chase, I really appreciate your generous sharing! You are such an amazing teacher and educator! I teach Chinese but I still learn a lot from you. Many activities that I learned from you have been a big hit in my Chinese classroom. THANK YOU! Please keep up the great work! ❤
Oh thank you!!
Where can I find/purchase the Sabias que notetaker? Thank you! I love these trivia games.
They’re linked in the instruction document that you downloaded from TPT. On the Costa Rica one, it’s on page 5. You can also hold down “control” + “F” and search for “Notetaker”…. If there’s a problem with the link in a particular game, let me know and I’ll fix it!
Thank you! Sorry one other question….when you select a student….to translate the paragraph with the additional information, do you have any systems so that different groups are selected for each turn, or is it just the luck of the draw? Thank you! And Happy New Year!

I just do random, so everyone is engaged in reading it, because anyone could be called for the extra card.
