How to talk about the weather in Spanish

(English Version)
Objectives

  • By the end of this activity, the students will have learned the vocabulary and basic expressions related to the weather in Spanish.

  • They will also review the days of the week, clothing and leisure activities vocabulary learned in previous lessons.


Activity Summary

The students will learn the weather vocabulary and basic expressions with a video that they will watch at home. Then, they will practice what they have learned in class with an interactive online game and a written exercise. Finally, they will do a presentation about the weather in front of the class.


Time Allocation

50 minutes


Procedure

  1. In a previous class, the teacher assigns students as a homework to watch the video¿Qué tiempo hace? (https://youtu.be/u-46r9A643w) and complete Handout 1.



  2. In this class, the teacher shows the video ¿Qué tiempo hace? again and discusses Handout 1 that the students completed as homework. Then, as a practice, they will play Kahoot (an interactive online multiple choice game) to match the weather symbols with the correct expression. To play, the teacher uses his/her computer and projector to access the game here: https://play.kahoot.it/#/k/558e5f67-f030-4d33-87a6-c716067cc1a4. The students use their mobile devices, tablets or computers to access www.kahoot.it and answer the questions projected by the teacher. It is not necessary to create an account to play. (To see how easy is to use Kahoot, watch this video: https://youtu.be/v2JbY979WUg)

    Variation: If the students can’t use their mobile devices, they can practice using the presentation ¿Qué tiempo hace?.





  3. Once the game is finished, the teacher projects Handout 2 on the board and ask for volunteers to say the expression that represents each image. Also the days of the week are reviewed. Now, hand out Handout 3 that the students will be able to complete using the images from Handout 2 shown on the board.




  1. Students use the weather app from their mobile devices (or a weather website) and select a city from Latin America. (The teacher can write on the board some cities as examples.) They look for the weather and write it down on Handout 4, part 1 using as many weather expressions in Spanish as they can. Then, they ask 5 other classmates how’s the weather in their cities and take notes on Handout 4, part 2. They should also write examples of clothes/objects they should have for that weather and what activities can be done according to the weather.




  1. The students take turns standing in front of the class and presenting the weather of 3 cities including clothes/objects they should have and what activities can be done with that weather. The students can draw their own weather symbols on a piece of paper or on the board and present it like a TV weather segment. The presentation should be 1 minute long.


Suggested evaluation method

It is advisable to have a rubric to assess speaking activities in which it should be clear to students how to move from one level to the next. A rubric indicating how a student is Meeting, Exceeding or not Meeting Expectations is the most useful. The suggested “Speaking Production Rubric” can be used (Handout 5).
