Making Soundtracks to Teach Past Continuous

Do you need to teach past continuous and is looking for something simple that requires no preparation and engages students? Maybe you could try this digital task out.

Aim - Sentence level practice of past continuous and simple past
Devices - Any device students have that records voice

Model the activity by playing a soundtrack and asking students to write a sentence to describe it. e.g. The boy was listening to music when the sound system broke. Separate the class in small groups and give them 10 minutes to think of a situation, write a sentence and record their soundtracks. Share students work and elicit what the sentences are.


Students`s work
