This is a communicative activity designed to get students asking and answering questions that cover basic personal information in Spanish. Concepts covered include name, age, residence, and some questions about favorite things. This is saved as a Word doc so you can tweak questions and answers as needed.
To complete the activity, students first read the questions and note their personal opinions (in Spanish) in the first column. Then they work with a partner to ask questions and record their partner’s responses in Spanish — one column per interview. Students should rotate partners to complete three separate interviews during the activity period.
Once their worksheets are complete, students circle interviewee answers that match their own. They will tally these similarities to see if their classmate was a twin, a sibling, or if they are an only child (the score key is at the bottom).
If time remains, you can do a whole-class follow-up activity in which you tally up how many people found a twin in the class, etc. You can also ask third-person questions about students in the class and ask people who interviews them to supply the answers orally.
You can get a lot of oral communication mileage out of this activity, especially if you have students hide their sheet from each other so their partners can’t just read the answers.
