¿Luego Qué Pasa?

Pictures are a great way to stimulate thought, imagination, and conversation both in and out of the classroom.  They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and, if I could ever get that amount of talk from a student, I would count it as quite the coup.  Some pictures provide a better opportunity for discussion than others, of course.

The following are a few pictures that I found online, here and there.  They are unusual and call for a bit of imagination to develop a background story, then they require more imagination to discuss what would happen next.  It's a great way to use present perfect and future tenses at level III, or you could just allow students to describe the picture in the present or the present progressive.

As an extension, it would be fun if students brought in their own pictures (either originals or ones they found online) to exchange with each other and discuss even more.

Have fun with them, amigos!

Hasta pronto,

I used this in class today with my Spanish 3 students who are using the preterit and imperfect tenses together - for each photo they had to write a sentence describing simultaneous actions and another describing an interrupting action.
