Product Description
These directions are also written on the last page of the document.

This is a class set with 30 individual surveys for students to take. The teacher then distributes the surveys to the class and students create fortunes using the future tense tailored to the survey results they receive.

The surveys are done anonymously since the surveys are numbered but students find out who made their fortunes at the end of the activity when they meet their partners.

This is a great activity for extended block periods and though it focuses on future tense can work quite nicely using "ir + a + infinitive". It's also a nice opportunity to practice teacher-to-student commands when having students make the actual "cootie catchers".


Future Tense cootie catcher directions:
• Have students fill out survey on their own without writing their names
• Teacher records which student has which number and then collects the surveys
• Teacher guides students in making the paper cootie catchers – this is a good opportunity to practice following commands in target language (Spanish). Directions can be found easily online and many students remember from when they were younger (four colors on the outside, each flap has two numbers together, and beneath each number is a fortune so students will end up writing eight fortunes total)
• Teacher assigns two numbers together (1 goes with 25, 2 goes with 24, etc.) and passes out the corresponding surveys to the students (#1 receives #25’s survey and #25 receives #1’s survey, etc.)
• Students then read their anonymous partner’s survey and creates fortunes that correspond to this person; the fortunes can be nice (things the person likes according to their survey) or not so nice (the person will face their biggest fears).
• When students are done they are instructed to find their partner and take turns finding out their fortunes using the cootie catchers.
