Do you need the first day of Spanish class activity for Spanish 2? This Find Someone Who people search or people hunt activity was designed as an interpersonal communicative activity to get Spanish students talking. It would be great for students who have some Spanish background knowledge such as late Spanish 1, Spanish 2, or Spanish 3 to talk about what they did at a specific time in the past (last weekend, last summer, over break, etc) using just the verbs fui, fuiste and fue.

The PDF Find Someone Who contains multiple differentiated versions to fit a variety of class needs.

⭐Page 1 - questions with yo form of the answer provided - most basic

⭐Page 2 - write about friends with the support of s/he forms included - most basic

⭐Page 3 - questions (without yo form)

⭐Page 4 - write about friends & self - most advanced

⭐Page 5 - questions template - students create their own

This FSW is the perfect one-day activity introduction to the preterite tense. It is a great way to review or introduce the verb ir in the preterite. Even if students have had limited exposure to past tense, all forms needed are provided on the easier version. There is an extension to have students write about what their class will do as well.

This Find Someone Who people search or people hunt activity was designed as an interpersonal communicative activity to get Spanish students talking on a Monday using the Preterite. It would be great for students who have some Spanish background knowledge such as Spanish 2, Spanish 3, or Spanish 4 to talk about what they did over the weekend.


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.
