Ss are in 4 groups read about the people.Groups A,B,C,D. Then, join two groups together. Ss will talk to each other about what they read using the following questions: How was the weekend? What did he/she do on the weekend? .
Ss work in the previous 4 groups on ex 2 and match the cut-ups. When the Ss finish the matching exercise, they write down the Past simple of the given verbs on the paper.
