Get your kids up and moving, speaking, and helping each other! All you have to do is help them to pair up if necessary and circulate to help them find answers if they need it. I learned this activity from a science teacher who was using it to prepare her students for a test, and it can be used with any content area. Students pick a temporary partner, the pair do two questions together, and then they move on to different partners. The purpose of this activity is to get them to work with people they might not always choose to work with, to read and speak in Spanish, to share their knowledge and/or find out answers together for a variety of material from the chapter.
This resource has 22 questions that correspond to the vocab and grammar in Chapter 2A of Realidades 2. It covers much of the vocab, possessive pronouns in context, reflexive verbs, and ser vs. estar. The questions are in Spanish, and there are a few hints to help them read the questions (such as compañero [partner] and señalar [signal]).

In order to do this activity, all you need is the paper, writing utensils, room for kids to move around, and their notes and/or books for them to consult if they're not sure of an answer. Students have the paper, which describes the purpose of the activity as well as the directions (in Spanish). Start by explaining to them how they're going to pair up. They start with one partner, and then when they're finished with their first two questions, they raise their hands and then pair up with different partners who have their hands up. This continues until everyone is finished or until you call time. I would explain to them (depending on the age of the kids and the chemistry of the class) that it's important that they work with people who aren't their best friends and that they be kind, helpful, and inclusive. (It's a life skill, kids!) It's also important that they actually say the questions and answers to each other in Spanish so that they're practicing pronunciation. They can do the questions in or out of order.
When you call time, some people will have more finished than others, so if you choose, you can go over it all whole class or have them work with small groups to fill in any gaps they have. Or you could make it homework to finish.
