Goal of the class:
Students remember vocabulary about food.
How did you structure the class?
Activity 1 (10min): Since the whether was really hot, I prepared one Spanish song that is about that. I printed the lyrics with some gaps instead of words and they had to fill them up while listening. Beforehand, they ask all the words they did not understand.
Activity 2 (15min): Food brainstorm. The whiteboard is divided into three columns: one about food, another about tools for eating and cooking and the last one about verbs for cooking. Likewise, the first column is divided into vegetables, meat, fish, fruit and spieces. One by one, the students fill each of the topics.
Activity 3 (15min): My favorite receipt. Divided in groups of three, they tell each other how to cook their favorite meal or the meal the can cook better.
Activity 4 (20min): In the same groups, they tell each other one catastrophic story that happened to them while cooking. Afterwards, they choose one and invent another two stories. The rest of the groups have to figure out which is the true one and who happened to.
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

What worked well in this class? What did not work? How could this class be improved/ modified?
I think this class worked well in general. They had a lot of fun telling the others the catastrophic stories. The first activity is a warm up activity. You are welcome to choose any other or not, depending on how you like the song and if it is a hot summer/autumn day =)
