Connect 4 - Verb Sentences

Make a large grid on the board (about 7x7). Put one verb in each box. Use different tenses for each of the verbs. The student has to use the verb in whatever form it is on the board (I skied, I am skiing, or I am going to ski). If they make a proper sentence then they can change the word into an x or an o. Then the other team goes for it. The object of the game is to get four in a row. The game takes strategy and good English. In my class weve already learned these tenses so this will be used as a fun review class. For higher-level student you can throw a question mark in the box with the verb, which means they must use the verb but make a question out of it (Did you ski yesterday?).

Actually, Ive never played the game, I just thought it up this morning and plan to use it in my class today.
