ESL Present Tense Review Game - Reading, and Writing Activity - Intermediate (B1) - 20 minutes

In this engaging present tense review game, students play Connect 4 by making sentences in the present simple, present continuous, present perfect simple and present perfect continuous. The first player chooses a square and completes the sentence with the verb in brackets in the present simple, present continuous, present perfect or present perfect continuous. The player then reads the complete sentence aloud to the group. The student acting as judge checks the player's answer on the answer sheet. If the present tense verb form is correct, the player writes the verb form in the space and marks the square with an O or X. It's then the other player's turn to choose a square. If the player says the wrong verb form, play passes to the other student. The first player to get four squares in a row wins the game. If no one manages to do this, the player with the most squares wins. Afterwards, students swap roles and play game 2, giving the student who acted as judge a chance to play.
