This is the first of my new student-led learning series called Figure Out! This is Figure Out: The Future Tense! and is aimed toward Spanish 3+ students.
These activities are used to introduce a new verb tense. In this case, it's the future tense. The concept behind the Figure Out! series is that students will completely teach themselves the new tense including:
1) what the new tense is probably called and what it means
2) how to form the new tense
3) connections/rules regarding forming the new tense
I suggest handing this activity out and explaining to students that they must use the clues within the text (in this case, a letter written about the culture of Argentina), to figure out what the new tense means and how to form it.
The second half of the activity includes an introduction to the irregular verbs in the future tense (e.g., tener, saber, decir), practice with writing sentences in the future tense with given information, and practice producing original sentences with the future tense.
An answer key is included. Please note: two versions of the letter are included.< One version has the future tense verbs underlined (less difficult) and the other version does not underline the future tense verbs (more difficult). This allows for easy differentiation within your classroom.
This is a fantastic, interactive way to have students take ownership in their learning and teach themselves the new verb tense. I promise you that you'll be amazed with how many connections students will be able to make as they read this activity and complete the activities.
