Product Description
This is a great activity to get the whole class speaking, which is hard to do in Spanish 1! This is beginner level and incorporates a lot of the vocabulary from Realidades 1: Para Empezar.

SETUP: In the chart, you will find 35 questions and 35 answers. Before you print, be sure to edit any of the questions/answers that are specific to my classroom. For example, there is a question to which the answer is "Senora Payne," so you will want to change that to your name. There is a question about the Atlanta Braves because that's where my school is located, so you can change that to reflect your hometown team. The question about today's date, you will want to change the date to whichever day you'll be doing this in class. You get the picture. :)

Print the chart, cut it into strips (one Q and one A per strip), then hand one strip to each student in the class. Be sure you mix them up and hand them out at random, not in order! I believe there are 35 sets of questions and answers. If you have fewer students than this, then you, the teacher, will just have to be responsible for any leftover strips. If you have MORE than 35 students (bless you), you will want to add a few more question and answer pairs so that everyone gets to participate.

ACTIVITY: Choose a random student to start by reading his/her QUESTION ONLY. Whichever student thinks he has the answer will read the answer, and then his question. Whichever student thinks they have the next answer will go, and so on and so forth. Every student has the answer to someone ELSE'S question! No matter where you start, it always makes a loop. Pretty cool. It ends when it comes back to the student who started.

I like to do one practice round so that they get the feel for it, and then the second time, I record their time. I like to turn it into a race/competition among all of my classes by writing their times on the board and awarding a small prize (candy, etc.) to the class with the best time. This gets them invested and gets them really working together.
