This game is an easy print-out that students follow oral and written directions in Spanish to complete.
First, have students make the game by having them color the salad ingredients according to the directions. You can give directions orally, and/or use the included Power Point slide for written directions. You can also print the slide to make game prep a homework assignment. (Color printing isn’t necessary if you don’t want to give a hint about color vocabulary.)
Students will also need to cut out the playing pieces along the lines.
To play the game, students will place salad ingredients onto the plate playing board according to your oral directions. You can set up the game by explaining that you are a very picky restaurant customer and they are the chefs who must get your order just right. Give directions in Spanish by saying things like "Quería una ensalada con lechuga y tomates."
To make the game more interesting, specify the number of each ingredient, or ask for specifics like only small apples. You can also get creative and ask for an all green salad, etc. Use as many combination of colors and sizes as you like.
Once students know how to play, you can set them up in small groups, taking turns as the restaurant patron and chefs to practice speaking skills. I have also used this as a low-key assessment by watching a few students respond and noting what they have trouble with.
