Find Your Partner: Past Forms

(TESOL Worksheets)
Google Docs Version Here

[Although I have mixed feelings about teaching too much meta-language too students, I was working out of a textbook which assumed students were familiar with the formal names of verb tenses.  So I decided it was beneficial for my students to learn the terminology so they could better understand their textbook.
This is a standard find your partner game.  It's divided into 3 parts.  In the first part, the students simply have to match the verb with the name by finding someone else in the class who has the matching slip of paper.  In the second part, they are given a worksheet and have to write the names in.  This is then reviewed in class by the teacher.  In the 3rd part, the students have to find groups of threes--one person with the example sentence, one with the verb tense name, and one person with the verb structure.]
