Spanish Preterite Tense Panal de Preguntas

**Virtual option included via Google Drive TM**

What is covered in this activity?

This activity focuses on the preterite tense. Regular and some common irregular verbs are included (ir, hacer, tener, and ver for irregulars)

A variety of 15 question prompts included: any prompts that trigger a yes/no answer have follow up included!


¿Qué comiste anoche?

¿Cocinaste algo ayer? ¿Para quién?

¿Trabajaste el verano pasado? ¿Dónde?

¿Practicaste un deporte esta semana? ¿Dónde?

¿Adónde fuiste ayer después de las clases?

¿Leíste un libro anoche? ¿Qué libro?

15 separate prompts total!

What is included?

Your PDF download includes:

  • a Panal de Preguntas version that is ready to go as-is, as a low-tech option with a printable response sheet. This option is best for individual student work

  • teacher instructions, a support video, and challenges for students to earn points during digital gameplay

  • a link to your own digital copy within Google Slides TM (this digital copy contains the digital game pieces and instructions for students in the margins!)

What is Panal de Preguntas?

Students work in pairs or small groups and take turns choosing a number from page one. Clicking on that number/button will lead them to a question. In the digital copy, they can type their response directly on the question slide, in a prepared space. They then use the coded buttons to navigate back to the homepage, where they claim their space with a digital marker from the margin. Students are challenged to arrange their markers in certain patterns to earn points!

Students move between edit and present modes within Google Slides TM to utilize the navigation buttons and enter their responses. A support video is included for help with this :)

The game board includes buttons that are linked to 15 prompts. Each prompt has space for students to answer directly within the digital copy. (Again, there is a printable answer sheet for a low-tech option.)

There are digital game pieces for up to 4 students, but for the challenges/points, it is best to work in pairs or groups of 3. This activity can also be completed individually!

Check out the preview to get a better look!

I hope your students love this hands-on activity!
