This activity presents a made up language that is based on Swahili. Students look at examples of how verbs show tense and must decipher what word makes a verb in the past, present, or future. This is a great exercise to help students understand the abstract concept of verb tenses. By using an artificial language students will be able to create phrases in the past, present, and future without resorting to grammar rules. You will find yourself referring back to exercise throughout the year as students struggle with understanding verb tense. This great for a language arts class or any foreign language class. this document includes two different puzzles to work through.
