I came across this guide for palm reading, and thought it could make an interesting activity for students to practice descriptions, the verb ser, and the present tense (what we’re working on this unit)! Here’s a possible way of giving the lesson:
1. Discuss the guide:
present tense verbs & present tense conjugations of ser for describing personality traits
gender of the adjectives must agree with the person being described
2. In pairs, students read each other’s palms and compare what the palm tells about their personality with how they really are.
3. Students get a new partner and describe their first partner based on what the palm-reading revealed and the discussion that followed OR that could be the writing prompt:
¿Qué aprendiste sobre tu compañero al leer su mano? ¿Es así de verdad?
