First of all this is not my idea. I can’t take credit for this. Unfortunately, I can’t remember which website I saw this on. If it was you, thank you for a great idea!
This is a great activity for after reading a story or a chapter in a novel. Put students in pairs of 2 (they could also work individually). Give each group a part of the story/chapter. They need to choose a scene. Take the class outside (!!) and give each group a piece of BIG sidewalk chalk. Each group draws a scene from the story/chapter and writes in the target language a caption for the drawing.
What I learned from doing it the first time: tell them that the drawing needs to be a certain size. I had too many enormous drawings. (They ran out of chalk!)
Students’ reactions were all very positive. One comment was “Señor you just made my day.”
