I will hand out three questions on a piece of paper and ask Ss to guess the time words that missing in each sentence in the paper. Then I will draw a time line on WB and ask them to order the time phrases on to the line in terms of which is further in the past.
I will hand out a piece of paper and ask them to draw a timeline and work in pairs to put the phrases on the line. Answer key will be provided to Ss.
I will hand out a worksheet and ask them to work in pairs to complete the sentences. Answer key to be provided to Ss.
I will divide half the class into As and the other half into Bs. I will ask Ss "when did you last.." and couple of follow up questions for demo.There will be two handouts (for As and Bs). I will pair As with Bs and get them to ask their questions to each other in turn. For FB, I will ask a student what he/she learned about the partner.
If time allows; I will hand out a piece of paper and ask them to work in pairs and get student Bs to ask questions to Student As about the last time they had special meal. For FB I will get a student to talk about his/her partner's special meal.
