Problem Solving Scenarios in Spanish – Conversation Cards in PDF

¡Hola! Thanks for joining us again. This time, we are sharing a great PDF worksheet including a set of 16 conversation cards in Spanish with interesting scenarios. This material will give students a chance to practice speaking with their friends or classmates by trying to find solutions to common problems in life.

Directions:

Students form groups of four to participate in this speaking activity.

Each group of students gets a copy of the PDF worksheet. First, they must cut out the conversations cards, which include sixteen different scenarios in Spanish about possible problems they could face someday, such as: how they would survive in a risky situation, what they would do if they had a lot of extra money, as well as other decisions that are commonly made as an adult. Students must form a deck with the conversation cards, shuffle it, and take turns to draw a card at a time. After that, they should give a one-minute reply adding real or make-believe information about the things they would do if they found themselves in that specific situation. It’s important that they answer just in Spanish, making a relatively good use of the vocabulary and grammar structures to give a good solutions to the different problems described in the worksheet, otherwise, the card must be returned to the deck. The student who follows these rules and holds the most cards by the end of the game wins.

Class activity: Is that the correct solution?

In this speaking activity, students work in groups again, but this time exchanging one of their team members with one from a different group. The new teammate should pick a conversation card, read the problem and then provide his/her best solution to the problem. The other group members should find reasons why that solution may not be the best, despite how good it sounds. This way, each group member should make a follow-up question to the new team member, so that he can defend him/herself with good arguments and provide the best solution possible to the issue in Spanish. Once they have finished, the students go back to their original teams and two other students swap again, and so on.

5 Simple, At Home Spanish STEM Challenges

5 Simple, At-Home Spanish STEM Challenges

These 5 simple, at-home Spanish STEM challenges are fun, have minimal mess, and can be completed with everyday household items. They foster a love of science, technology, engineering, and math all while bringing these disciplines into the Spanish or bilingual classroom. 

I’ve chosen activities that have minimal prep and mess, and materials that are easy to find (most are probably lying around your house). These Spanish STEM challenges can even be completed virtually as students watch along with the teacher or assigned for students to complete at home (with some parent supervision). 

But first, what’s STEM?

STEM stands for S cience, T echnology, E ngineering, and M ath. It’s become popular in education because it promotes problem-solving in fun, real-life ways by combining at least two or more disciplines (engineering and math, science and technology, etc.).

Why STEM and Spanish?

Because you need to communicate those newfound problem-solving skills. And as we are living in a global community, being able to communicate in more than one language is not only a benefit but a necessity. 

While I’ve chosen well-known (yet quick and easy) STEM challenges, I’ve adapted them for Spanish learners. You’ll find vocabulary, materials needed, and just how to tie them into your Spanish class, bilingual classroom, homeschool, or at-home learning.

5 Simple, At home Spanish STEM Challenges

#1 Make a Paper Chain/ Haz una Cadena de Papel

This first activity comes from Little Bins Little Hands . It’s an engineering and math challenge that’s as quick and easy as you can get. The goal is to make the longest paper chain using ONE piece of paper. This is genius because of its minimal setup. 

Materials : a piece of paper, scissors, tape, tape measure (optional)

Materiales : una hoja de papel, tijeras, cinta adhesiva, cinta de medir (opcional)

Tie this into your Spanish or bilingual class by:

  • Describing length ( largo/corto ) and thickness ( ancho/estrecho )
  • Comparing – Mi cadena es más larga que la tuya. Mi cadena es más corta que la tuya.
  • Counting – ¿Cuantos anillos tiene tu cadena? Mi cadena tiene ____ anillos.
  • Number Forms – Students write the number in word form ( uno ) and standard form (1) as they count each ring.
  • Measuring – Mi cadena mide ___ pulgadas/centímetros.
  • Gender – Cadena de papel is feminine while anillo is masculine. Kids will have to take that into account when describing each word. La cadena es larg a . El anillo es anch o .

Vocabulary:

  • cadena de papel – paper chain
  • anillo – ring
  • largo – long
  • corto – short
  • ancho – wide
  • estrecho – narrow
  • más larga que – longer than
  • más corta que – shorter than
  • forma estándar – standard form (numeral)
  • forma en palabras – word form
  • medir – to measure

#2 Screen-Free Coding/ Coding Sin Pantalla

This next activity also comes from Little Bins for Little Hands , and is another fantastic STEM find. Kids learn the basics of coding by using a printable grid and small objects they have at home. Kids essentially create a maze. Then follow that up with directions on how to get from start to finish. In the coding world, those direction are technically an algorithm (or a series of steps). 

Coding is really popular right now, and rightfully so since code is what makes our technology function. But the real gem here, is that with all the screen time our kids are getting these days, this STEM challenge gives them a quick break. 

Materials : printable grid, index cards (or small pieces of paper), small objects

Materiales : papel cuadriculado, fichas, objetos pequeños

  • Practicing giving directions

Vocabulary :

  • algoritmo – algorithm
  • coding/ programación – coding
  • Sigue recto – Go straight
  • Gira a la derecha – Turn right
  • Gira a la izquierda – Turn left
  • Para – Stop
  • Vuelve atrás – Go back

#3 Walking Water Experiment/ Agua Andando

This activity, thanks to Coffee Cups and Crayons , is a science experiment that shows capillary action ( acción capilar ) and color mixing ( mezcla de colores ).

Students place three cups in a row, filling the outer cups with water, but leaving the center cup empty. Next, add food coloring. You’ll want to use primary colors in the outer cups (blue and red, red and yellow, or blue and yellow). Then place a rolled paper towel from cup one to cup two, and another paper towel is placed from cup two to cup three. Finally, the magic happens! Watch as water walks up the paper towels from the outer cups to the center cup until all cups have an equal amount of water. As this happens you’ll see the colors combine to make a secondary color in the center cup (blue and red make purple, red and yellow make orange, blue and yellow make green).

Note: Capillary action is when water moves upward against gravity. This is how trees and plants get water and nutrients from soil.

Materials : three glass cups, water, food coloring, paper towels

Materiales : tres vasos de vidrio, agua, colorante, toallitas de papel

  • Describing quantity/volume – Este vaso tiene más agua que el otro.
  • Reviewing colors and color mixing
  • más que – more than
  • menos que – less than
  • la misma cantidad – the same amount
  • lleno – full
  • vacío – empty
  • colores primarios – primary colors
  • colores secundarios – secondary colors

#4 Water Cycle Bag / La Bolsa del Ciclo del Agua

This next experiment from Playdough to Plato , is a great way to observe and discuss t he water cycle and weather.

By drawing a sun and cloud on the bag, adding some water, and taping it to a window students will be able to observe the water cycle in action over a few hours/days. So while this activity is quick to set up, its best for long term observation or a class project. 

Materials : a plastic sandwich bag, black marker, water, tape, food coloring (optional) 

Materiales : una bolsa de plástico para sándwiches, marcador negro, agua, cinta adhesiva, colorante (opcional) 

  • Discussing the water cycle
  • Talking about the weather
  • el ciclo del agua – the water cycle
  • el tiempo/ el clima – the weather
  • precipitación – precipitation
  • condensación – condensation
  • evaporación – evaporation
  • nubes – clouds
  • vapor de agua – water vapor
  • Está soleado – It’s sunny
  • Está lloviendo – It’s raining
  • Está nublado – It’s cloudy

#5 How Strong is Spaghetti?/ ¿Qué tan fuerte es el espagueti?

Finally, Frugal Fun 4 Boys , has a fun spaghetti strength test. They test how much weight spaghetti can hold both vertically (you’ll need styrofoam for this and not every family has that on hand) and horizontally (I recommend this way as you don’t need styrofoam). This challenge is a great introduction to engineering .

Materials : spaghetti, books, small toys, styrofoam (optional)

Materiales : espagueti, libros, juegetes pequeños, poliestireno (opcional)

  • Describing strength; or
  • Counting the number of objects spaghetti holds
  • fuerte – strong
  • débil – weak
  • El espagueti sostenga ____ juguetes/libros – Spaghetti holds ___ toys/books.

I know we are all racking our brains for activities that can be done at home. These 5 simple, at-home Spanish STEM challenges check that box, plus they give kids the opportunity to have fun, learn STEM skills, and practice their Spanish. Win-Win.

Problem Solving Wheel: Help Kids Solve Their Own Problems

Students who act out in aggressive behaviors often do so because they struggle with identifying solutions to their problems. A Problem-Solving Wheel can help teach your students to learn how to independently solve a problem.

A problem-solving wheel also known as the wheel of choice or solution wheel is a great way to give students a visual of choices to help them either calm down when they are upset or to help them solve a problem with a classmate.

It is best to use the problem-solving wheel when students are dealing with a “small” problem. “Small” problems include conflicts that cause “small” feelings of annoyance, embarrassment, boredom, etc. If the student has a BIG problem they should practice telling an adult. “BIG problems” are situations that are scary, dangerous, illegal, etc.

problem solving wheel in spanish

Examples of Small Problems

  • A classmate broke your pencil
  • Someone cut in front of them in line
  • A classmate is using the color crayon they want to use
  • A friend keeps kicking their chair

Conflict Resolution

Children don’t always know what to do when they are experiencing conflicts with others. When students are stressed and in the moment of a conflict they can often forget how to solve the problem A problem-solving choice wheel can help them learn different ways to solve their problems. I’ve created a few free printable problem-solving choice wheels for you to choose from. Simply download and start using in your classroom today!

Problem Solving Wheel Freebie

Comes in 4 different versions:

  • Ready-Made: “What can I do?” choice wheel is ready to use right away. Simply download, print and start using this freebie!

  • Editable Version: Using the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader edit all the blue boxes with your own words.

problem-solving-wheel

When you create a consistent pattern of how to solve problems students will eventually pick up on that pattern and begin to implement the pattern independently.

Send me the Problem Solving Choice Wheel!

Involve children in finding the solution..

Involving children in the problem-solving process can help give them buy-in into using the system that they take part in creating. Use the blank version or the editable version and have your students create their own ideas for how to solve “small” problems on their own. Your students might even surprise you and come up with some creative solutions.

Teach Feeling Words

In addition, for some of our students teaching feeling words can help them have the vocabulary necessary to express how they are feeling during a problem. We can start by naming students’ feelings for them and after some practice hopefully, the students will begin to use feeling words to describe how they are feeling during a conflict. For example, “Sam the way you yelled, “no” and stomped your feet tell me that you are angry.” Talking to our students this way can help bring their attention to their feelings so they can eventually identify their own feelings.

Help your students resolve a social conflict on their own with this – PROBLEM-SOLVING WHEEL .

 Where to Begin

  • Start by posting the PROBLEM-SOLVING WHEEL in a good spot in your classroom or office.
  • Start slowly and use 1-2 solutions and build up to using all 6 solutions.
  • Practice, practice, practice!

Helpful Tips

  • Start slowly: practice using 1-2 choices at a time and slowly build up to using all six. Be clear about what each choice looks like in practice.
  • Practice is critical: Even after introducing the Problem-Solving Wheel students will still depend on you to help them resolve their conflicts. Continue to modal and have your students practice.

Books on Problem Solving

For Younger Children: Recommended Ages 2-6

  • The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear
  • Duncan the Story Dragon
  • The Whale in my Swimming Pool

For Older Children: Recommended Ages 8-12

  • Dough Knights and Dragons
  • Rosie Revere, Engineer

Aggressive behaviors are often exhibited when a student struggles with identifying solutions to their problems. A problem-solving wheel can be a great way to give students a visual of choices to help them calm down and to solve a problem with a classmate or friend.

Lauren Link

I highly recommend this program for anyone who works with children.

Kerri Stritchfield

The students and their teachers love the problem solving skills Kelso teaches them.

King Avenue Elementary

We use a non threatening frog puppet to teach children how to solve problems in a peaceful way. Communities need to work together to promote a healthy, nonviolent environment for children from infancy through the teenage years. Teachers who participated in the Kelso’s Choice program during its first year reported a significant decrease in physical conflicts and tattling.
