Some ideas to make this Find Someone Who distance or hybrid friendly:

  • Use the TPT EASEL digital add-on to share with students & collect responses.
  • Click Print and then save as PDF with the pages you want to use digitally and share with students.
  • Email to students and have them call, snap, email, message each other in Spanish to ask the questions if you do not meet as a group. This will encourage them to connect with each other in Spanish. Or they could ask people they live with as well. 
  • In a zoom class, use the break-out rooms to have students ask each other the questions in small groups. 
  • In a group class zoom or meet, project the grid & call on students, or have them raise their hand to respond to one question. 
  • Have students use Flipgrid to ask & answer the questions.

Some ideas to make this Find Someone Who social distance friendly

  • Do the paper FSW activity outside.
  • Interview a partner using Plexiglas.
  • Instead of having other people sign the form, have each student just write the name of the person who said yes instead.
  • Instead of interviewing the whole class, just work with a partner or small group with masks on.
