¿Cómo era? Descriptive writing task

¿Cómo era? Descriptive writing task

I wanted to try to encourage my students to complete some extended writing using the preterite and imperfect tense so I put together a creative writing task where the students work in pairs to create a Trip Advisor review of a holiday. There are three different sheets for them to write their TripAdvisor review on; one awful holiday, one average holiday and one luxury holiday so that they don't all have the same thing to write about. The students use the pictures on the sheet to base their description on e.g. if there's a picture of a car then they should write viajé en coche. However, they can also add extra details such as weather, holiday activities, hotel facilities etc.They then swapped their work and peer assessed using the grid provided. After this they had to improve their work based on the feedback they had received and write a final version.
