    2. Ask the students a few questions to get them started with speaking Spanish before you move onto the main activity:

    “¡Hola estudiantes! ¿Cómo están? Cómo pasaron el fin de semana? ¿Tienen planes divertidos para el fin de semana? ¿Cómo les va la semana?” 

    Main Activity

    Materials Needed for Main Activity: 

    1. Remind students we are doing speed dating. Explain that each slide will have a timer. In partners, they are going to answer the questions but need to remember that both need to respond in the time given. When the timer goes off, one person will move. Then the process will repeat.

    “¡Hoy vamos a hacer una actividad similar a ‘speed dating’! Cada diapositiva va a tener un cronómetro (timer). En parejas van a contestar las preguntas, recuerden dar tiempo para que LOS DOS pueden responder. Cuando suene el cronómetro, una persona va a mover y ¡El proceso repita!”
