Students interview each other at a school reunion to find out where they've been since graduation.

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  • Begin by explaining the scenario to the students that after graduation, all of their friends went all over the world. They all came back together for a school reunion and now you want to find out where they have all been and for how long.
  • Pass out the worksheets. Students look at the first side, with the map. You explain that, first students will ask each other "Have you been to~?" The students will answer "Yes, I have", "No, I haven't." If after three guesses they haven't guessed it, then the second student will answer "I have been to ~." (*Note. if you think this is confusing you can just change Question 1 to "Where have you been?" my teachers just really wanted to have the student practice "Yes, I have. No, I haven't."
  • When the students find the country they ask Question 2 - "How long have you been there?". The opposite student will answer from their card: "I have been there for/since ~."
  • The goal is for the students to find someone from each country before the time runs out (I give them 10-15 min)
  • Part 2 - is connect the names to the correct countries.
  • Part 3 - is writing. (*Note you can make them write first and the students who finish early can work on connecting the countries).

VARIATIONS:

  • I made this activity with a lower-level class in mind. So the full sentence is on the card. If you want you can just cut that down to the name of the country and the for/since+year. Then make sure you go over with the students how to make the correct sentence.
