Recognizing Colors in Spanish – PDF Word Soup

¡Hola! We designed this worksheet to help you practice the vocabulary for colors in Spanish by solving two simple exercises in a nice PDF worksheet. Hopefully, you will find the words soup challenging and useful to practice this key vocabulary.


Students can work individually or in pairs to solve the exercises in this worksheet.

  • Exercise No. 1: Students must think of a color that best describes each thing in the sentences. Some colors may not make sense depending on the context.
  • Exercise No. 2: Students must find fourteen different colors in Spanish in the word soup, just as it has been done with the word “Morado” (purple). The colors to be found are listed on the right of the words soup. For real life situations, some “colores” have synonyms, like “Café” and “Marrón”, or “Naranja” and “Anaranjado”.

  • El águila calva es de color blanco, negro y amarillo. (The bald eagle is white, black and yellow.)

Once they have everything planned, students present to the rest of the class and the teacher provides feedback.
