This activity aligns with, but is not limited to, Realidades 1 Tema 8A, and it focuses on the preterite along with 8A vocabulary. Some previous chapter vocabulary is thrown in! Students are given scenarios and situations they need to formulate sentences into the preterite. In the first section, only the YO form is practiced. The second and third sections requires more student input.
I have used this as a warm-up, a speaking activity, and even as a homework assignment. You can have students write out answers as homework and/or have them e-mail you an audio clip.
Thanks for looking, and check out my other Realidades 1 material.
