Cut the strips of paper on the dotted line and in half so there are 10 pictures.
Choose five students and give them each person two pictures. These students go to the front of the class without revealing their pictures to the rest of the class. I typically put these pictures in a folder so that it is more secretive. If you use a pocket folder you can paper clip the pictures inside and they can be easily swapped out for additional games.
The other students in the class each receive the grid sheet and begin by writing down the names of the five students in the front of the room (along the left side of the paper under “las personas”). Students can also do this in pairs to conserve paper or to give more speaking opportunities to a larger class.
One at a time members of the class take turns trying to guess who has each picture. All students record the answers as they are given.
An order of students should be established by the teacher and this order will be repeated until a student has correctly identified what each student has.
Students should be informed that only one person has each picture and each person only has two different pictures.
Once the two pictures of a student in the front of the room are identified, that student is out and removes himself from the lineup.
I typical declare two winners, the person who asks the last question to complete the board and the last person standing.
If you photocopy the grid sheet back-to back the activity can be done twice by choosing five new students to go to the front of the room and swapping out the pictures.
*Each activity includes a vocabulary list and sample questions.
**This activity focuses on vocabulary, but it can easily be used to practice pronouns (students respond to questions with pronouns, i.e. “Do you have the pencil?” and “Yes, I have it.”) You can also have students ask questions and answer in various verb tenses or in the subjunctive, i.e. “Did you buy…” or “Is it necessary that you buy…”
