PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a wonderful cultural activity, where students interview a family member about different times in their lives (in English or in Spanish), using prompts in the imperfect and the preterite. Once the students have the information, they create a timeline that chronicles the life of that family member, with a visually distinct separation between the preterite special events and the imperfect past habits.

Students fill in two sections of a grid for four different moments in the family member's life (as a baby, as a child, 12-20, and 21+) Each moment has questions of past habits and important events, and answers are in note form.

After all sections are filled in, the student creates a timeline of the life based on the answers.

See preview for samples of the instructions and the questions.

This is a great, scaffolded manner to use the imperfect and preterite together, and it helps the students understand the conceptual difference between the two. Students get a lot of practice in the el/ella form of both tenses, and there are many follow up activities that can be done from this worksheet. I have my students read 10 of the timelines and answer questions about what they learn, or have them write a scaffolded paragraph about the life. Feel free to email or comment if you are interested in follow-up worksheets and I will post some.

Best used for Spanish 2,3,4, and I use it in conjunction with Realidades 2 4b.
