Would you like to make changes to the materials? Access the template(s) below:

Warm Up

  1. Begin by introducing the Can-Dos for today’s activity and distributing the “Materials Required for Warm Up” to each student.
    Hola clase. Hoy, vamos a conocernos. Primero, voy a leer los can-do statements. 
  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 1 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.

Main Activity

  1. Have students scan the QR code or have them use physical materials. Students will ask each other questions based on the images on the bingo cards
    Hagan preguntas abiertas sobre los temas en las tarjetas. Por ejemplo,  una pregunta sobre la tecnología es: ¿Prefieres Android o Apple? ¿Por qué?
  2. Once the student answers, they sign that square. Then the other person can ask a question.
    Después de responder, escribe su nombre en el cuadrado. 
  3. 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)
    La meta es para obtener un “blackout” con firmas en cada cuadrado.

    1. ¿Qué han aprendido sobre tus compañeros durante la actividad? (What did you learn about your classmates during the activity?)
