    Please Note: Many of our activities were created by upper-division students at Boise State University and serve as a foundation that our community of practice can build upon and refine. While they are polished, we welcome and encourage collaboration from language instructors to help modify grammar, syntax, and content where needed. Kindly contact pathwaysproject@boisestate.edu with any suggestions and we will update the content in a timely manner.

    Materials Needed: 

    Warm Up

    Materials Needed for Warm-Up:

    • Slideshow
    • Whiteboards Dry or Wet Erase Markers

    Warm-Up

    1. Begin by introducing the Can-Dos for today’s activity and distributing the “Materials Required for Warm Up” to each student.
      Hoy vamos a conocernos con un actividad de conversación.
    2. There will be two lines of people and seven questions on the screen. The students will talk in partners and they have 30 seconds to ask and answer the question of their choice. Once done, one line will rotate down a person to create new partners.
      Tienen que estar en dos filas. En parejas, ustedes van a escoger una pregunta de la lista en la pantalla. Tienen 30 segundos para preguntar y contestar la pregunta. Después van a cambiar las parejas y una fila va a moverse.

    If you do a daily bell ringer or warm-up, this would be a great way for students to think before they share. You can ask them to write down the answers to 3 of the conversation questions. (Think, pair, share). 

    Main Activity

    Materials Needed for Main Activity: 

    1. Give students bingo cards
    2. Students will ask questions to each other based off of the topic on the card
      Cada tarjeta tiene temas de conversación. Hagan preguntas abiertas sobre los temas de las tarjetas a sus compañeros 
    3. Once the student answers, they sign that square. Then the other person can ask a question. Students will move around the room asking questions and getting different signatures on the card. Students should try to get a BLACKOUT (getting a signature on each square) or BINGO (by asking students questions about pictures in a row) Do whatever you have more time for (blackout takes longer)
      Despues de habla con una persona, escribe tu nombre en su tarjeta. Cambia compan˜eros y haga una pregunta a un nuevo compan˜ero. La meta es obtener un lotería de cinco cuadrados (o un blackout)

    Wrap Up

    1. Ask the following questions as a wrap up:
    • ¿Qué han aprendido sobre tus compañeros durante el lab? 
    • ¿Cuál fue tu tema favorita de la tarjeta y porque? 

    End of lab

    • Read Can-Do statements once more and have students evaluate their confidence. (Use thumbs up/thumbs down or download our student cards.)
    • Encourage students to be honest in their self-evaluation.
    • Pay attention, and try to use feedback for future labs!
