This is a group activity for students to wrap up a unit on the preterite vs imperfect. Students work in groups of 2-3 to read sentences together and decide if they require the preterite or imperfect, and then they present their sentences to the class and defend their choice of the preterite or imperfect verb for each sentence. There are 10 different groups. My students enjoyed this two-day activity and they did all the thinking instead of me!
This is a zip file with a teacher's guide and a Word document with instructions for students and everything they need to be successful. The Word document is editable so the sentences can be modified to suit your students' needs. I used the acronyms BOLTS and UBOAT to teach the difference between the preterite and imperfect and the Word document references them.
