Active Passive Find Your Partner Game (Present Simple and Present Continuous)

(TESOL Worksheet)
Google Docs version here.
[A standard find your partner game.  Cut up the boxes and distribute it to students.  The students then have to walk around the room to find a partner who has a sentence with the same meaning. The format of this sheet got a little bit lost posting to blogger, but ideally all of the cards should be of the same size. Some of these sentences are taken from the Headway activity book, others are my own.  Because I've found low level students can get very confused by this activity, I've added a worksheet at the bottom to review with the the students afterwards.]
