Warm Up

  1. Start by introducing the can-do statements and introducing yourself to the students. After, have the students introduce themselves to the rest of the group.
    Hola, ¿cómo están? Estoy ____. Vamos a empezar el lab de hoy con los can-do statements.
    Ejemplo, “Me llamo Alex, estudio ciencia política, soy de Idaho y me encanta bailar.”
  2. After the students finish introducing themselves, they will use the questions on the Google Slideshow to talk with their partners for 5 minutes in breakout rooms. Once done, tell them to return to the main session.
    Ahora van hablar en parejas por 5 minutos sobre las preguntas de la presentación. Una vez que terminen, vuelvan a la sesión principal y esperen por instrucciones.

Main Activity

  1. Students are going to work in partners for the main activity. (Have the students go back to their break-out room). Students will ask questions to each other based on the topic on the card. After their partner responds, they will ask a question from their card.
    Cada tarjeta tiene temas de conversación. Hagan preguntas abiertas sobre los temas de las tarjetas a su compañero. Por ejemplo (por un cuadrado con familia), “¿Cuantas personas hay en tu familia?”
  2. Students should try to get a BLACKOUT (asking a question about each square or BINGO (by asking students questions about pictures in a row) Do whatever you have more time for (blackout takes longer).
    La meta es obtener un lotería de cinco cuadrados (o un blackout). Obtener un Bingo cuando pregunta sobre cuadrados en la misma linea.
