This is a 'Student Favorite'.
Loving the game Cranium, I modified a version for the Spanish Classroom to use as a review. Students really enjoy this game. There are 6 different categories in which students act out, construct (with clay), draw or review a variety of grammar topics. This particular review is for Unit 2 Lesson 2 of Avancemos 1. It reviews vocabulary, the verb estar, the verb ir and location vocab. The pdf includes complete instructions for play.
I usually use this the day before the chapter test. It can take between 30-45 minutes depending on the group. Students work in small groups of 3 to 5. This also makes for a good sub plan day
because all of the answers are on the gamecards. As long as the students have played the game before, and the basic instructions are listed on the board, they play quite independently and really enjoy themselves. They light up when they see the Cranium materials out for the day!
My Cranium chapter games have 6 categories:
1. acting (vocab)
2. constructing with clay(vocab)
3. drawing (vocab)
4/5 & 6 – Focus on the chapter grammar
(1 per group)
-Clay or play dough
(1 container per group) (No clay? Simply swap a category.)
for taking score (a paper tally is also fine)
-One dry erase board and marker
per group (paper may be substituted)
-One set of game cutouts
