This wonderful activity is based on a Murder Mystery Dinner. During the “party” a mysterious murder will occur and it is students’ jobs to talk to each other in the target language to gather information to make an accusation at the end of the game. My students love this game and talk more than in any other oral activity that we do. All students receive character cards days before the game starts to tell them how to act, what info they know and what secrets they have. Packet includes an optional prezi to guide the game, directions, plot, character cards, name tags, character list, clues and data report sheet for students to fill out while in conversation. Allow 2-3 days for completion. Designed for my Spanish 2 class but could be adjusted for levels 3 and 4 by adding more past tense in descriptions and clues.
