BRIEF OUTLINE: This worksheet and activity focuses on the past progressive. Students must first solve a mystery and then create their own mystery.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. The premise is that a mask was stolen from a castle. Students must read the sentences and figure out which person stole the mask because their statements don't match up. The answer is 'Mike' because his statement clashes with Paul and Simon's.
  2. Explain the mystery and give the students about five minutes to solve it, making sure they don't yell out the answer!
  3. Then, the students must make their own mystery. Encourage them to be silly and/or creative. As they're thinking and writing, go through and make sure their sentences are correct and make sense.
  4. Finally, collect the papers and read them out loud. Reward the students that can solve them.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Have the students read their own papers out loud for a reward.

     

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Some students won't understand the concept and will need extra help.
