Lesson 7 Activities

Activity 1

Introduce hace frío and hace calor with motions. You could show the Opuestos PPT or use real objects.

ntroduce grande and pequeño, and triste and felíz with motions, when the students are ready (possibly after activities 3 and 4). Practice the words by using real objects or using the PPT below.

Activity 2

Play Hace frío, Hace calor. Have one student close their eyes, and hide an object. Say hace calor if they are getting closer, and hace frío if they are getting farther from the object.

This might take quite a bit of modeling, but will be a fun review or closing game in future lessons.

Activity 3

Project and tell the story El gato y el perro. Stop to ask questions and check for understanding as necessary.

Activity 4

Activity 5: Project and tell the story El patito pequeño. Stop to ask questions and check for understanding as needed.
