This is a comprehensive interpersonal activity where students ask a question to all of the students in class regarding food choices or general health information, and then make a graph of the responses. After all graphs are displayed, students then respond to questions about the general health and eating habits of the students based on the information in the graphs.
Each student receives an individual question regarding general heatlh (how much do you sleep, what do you eat for breakfast, how many hours do you play sports, etc...). They then poll the class in Spanish who responds in full sentences, and they write down their responses in note form. Then, each student synthesizes the information to create an individual graph that demonstrates the data they have found.
After all graphs are displayed, students must read all of the student graphs, infer conclusions from the individual graphs, and respond to questions regarding the synthesis of information. With each response, they must 'cite' their source by entering the number of the graph where they found the relevant information. Finally, students reflect on how they could be healthier as a class and write sentences based on their conclusion in the 'nosotros' form.
See preview for an example of each part of the worksheet. The document is long due to the fact that I have crated a half-sheet for each individual student with their own question on it.
This is a wonderful activity and comprehensive activity, as it gives them scaffolded and safe practice in Spanish with:
--asking questions in the 'tu' form.
--responding in the 'yo' form
--creating graph categories
--entering data in a graph
--interpreting sentences, data, and graphs in Spanish
--using information to respond to questions
--using data to draw conclusions
--making suggestions based on data and information synthesis.
Best for Spanish 1,2,3, and is an excellent method to introducing AP style analysis at the very beginning of our students' Spanish learning.
