This is a guessing game (in Spanish). It is designed to practice second person verb forms; in particular, the verb 'eres' (you are). There are 50 slides that give hints about famous people for a student to guess from the front of the room. On each slide, the name appears first, then disappears before the clues are added one by one, so a student at the front of the room could look back at the board to re-read the clues that have been revealed about him/her if needed. Each clue is meant to be read aloud by a classmate and gives more specific information about the person.
This game was written with clues by first year Spanish students in an ethnically diverse school, so many of the clues are very basic and might appear frank/offensive to others (often, the kids stated whether the person was black or white--kids at my school have no problem talking about color. A good lesson in itself, I think!). You can easily modify the slides that already exist and/or add your own by copying and pasting a slide and then editing the information to fit a new person.
The slideshow is provided in PDF and PPT formats, and there are two versions of the slideshow: one with all clues in the 'tú' form, and one with clues for politicians in the 'Usted' form.
Instructions for the game and cards for your students to create additional slides are included.
