Describe Carmen’s Friends and Foes

Spanish Language Learners– Inspired by Carmen Sandiego™ Episode 3, kids describe new characters from Carmen’s world.

Meet the Crew

In Episode 3, Carmen meets Zach and Ivy, two new members of her crew. Kids use their Spanish-speaking skills to describe these new allies.

Activity Instructions

Kids meet two more members of Carmen’s team, Zach and Ivy, and meet Tigress again.

  1. Have kids write descriptions in Spanish of two characters (Zach, Ivy, the ACME agents, Tigress, Inspector Devineaux, Miss Argent, Crackle, the cleaners…) who appear in the episode. The descriptions can include appearance, personality traits, likes and dislikes, or other aspects that can be used to identify characters. If you have done this activity previously, ask kids to pick a character they haven’t described before.
  2. Have kids work in pairs and take turns describing characters and guessing who they are.
