– Student A tells Student B about what they do during the week/weekend. (Much like Exercise 1 in the beginning of this lesson.)
– There are two sets of boxes, which contain focus vocabulary verbs. Student A and B use the verbs from one of the boxes to create a puzzle, much like the one on page 7, and let their partner solve it when done. While creating their puzzles pairs must be separated from one another, so they cannot see what their partner is doing. They should only know what verbs they need to use to make their puzzles.
Any of these two activities may be used for homework, and then played out during the next lesson.
