Past Simple Karuta Game

(TESOL Worksheets--Past Simple)
Google: drive, docs, pub
[This game is set up to work like the Japanese card game Karuta (W). The students are divided up into groups of three or four, and each group has a set of cards that are spread out face-up among their desks. The teacher reads a sentence, and the student selects a card that matches the grammar of that sentence. The first student in each group to place their hand on the correct card gets to keep that card. The winner is the student with the most cards at the end. The sentences, while changed around, are adopted from the English World 3 textbook. The sentence prompts can be read, or also there is a power point presentation on Google: drive, slides, pub.]
