LESSON 08: School Life in the USA

A man is playing the violin - Where's Wally Hide and Seek

This activity is best used as a simple review or to check understanding of the present continuous form

In pairs or groups, students read the hints along the side of the paper and find the person that is described in each hint.
ex. A man is playing the violin
Students must understand the meaning of the sentence before they can locate the correct character.

As a second part to reinforce creating their own sentences, you could have students make 2-5 hints of their own to challenge a friend.
