        Down the Drain | Oh Noah!

        Learn and practice Spanish, including vocabulary for playground equipment and numbers, with the Oh Noah! “Down the Drain” webisode, related games, and lesson plan. In the webisode, Coco's ball (“pelota”) rolls into the sewer and she asks Noah to retrieve it. Noah doesn't know what “pelota” means, so he brings back a crocodile instead! Students can learn, build upon, and apply the Spanish vocabulary by playing the interactive games. In the “Got Your Number” lesson plan, students will practice this Spanish vocabulary through a mapping activity, color-by-number sheet, and an assortment of number games.

        Down the Drain Interactive Video

        Watch the "Down the Drain" webisode with embedded games to introduce and reinforce vocabulary learning. At two points in each webisode, the video will pause and invite players to take a "Match It" challenge in which they can learn a set of vocabulary words, then play a concentration-style matching game involving those words. Players can choose to take the challenge, or return to the video without playing. After players complete each "Match It" challenge, the animated story continues. At the end of the webisode, a menu screen appears that allows kids to choose from the two "Match It" challenges they’ve already encountered, plus two new games – "Word Race" and "You Catch It, You Keep It" – which reinforce the same vocabulary words explored in the "Match It" games.
