Students love this activity! “Teléfono” is an interactive activity that mimics the game “telephone”, but it is written instead of verbal! This is an activity specifically to practice the structure "ir a + place + para (verb)" --- Writing sentences about going to a certain place in order to do a certain activity. Students will create sentences given this format, and pass their papers throughout the class. Each time the paper is passed, the next student either draws the sentence written, or writes a sentence for the drawing. The goal is to see if sentences change by the end, or end up the same, as in the real "telephone" game! Each time the paper is passed, students keep folding the previous line so that they can only see one section at a time, which is how the sentences possibly change.
