1. Write a series of clues that will lead students around the building. (Ex: Q: If you decided to become a pilot, where could you practice flying? A: STEM lab)
2. For each location, also write a clue that just requires them to practice their vocabulary. (Ex: Q:What flies in the air? A: an airplane)
3. Take each vocab clue and put it into its own Google Form with the answer.
SETTING UP EXPECATIONS FOR STUDENTS
The most important part about making this activity run smoothly is setting up the expectations from the very beginning. The day before, I asked students to pick one person from their table who would download a free QR reader app and bring their phone to class for the group to use, so we didn't waste any time. When students arrived to class, I had a clipboard on each table with copies of the directions, a hall pass, their answer sheet, and their first clue.
Absolutely! Students were reading, writing, and communicating in Spanish while also developing the soft skills of teamwork and problem solving. The Google Forms were fickle enough that they needed to spell everything correctly, which meant they were constantly referring back to their notes and getting more repetition as well. AND...it was REALLY fun!
