Preterite Communication Activity

After a weekend or vacation, set up an opportunity for conversation. Spanish language learners use the preterite to tell a partner where they went yesterday (or the day before). Learners write down the name of their partner, record two places they went, and collect a signature before moving on to another person. There are 10 total slots for recording. Improve the activity by requiring pupils to write down complete sentences and share out to the class after the activity.
