Shuffle and Guess - Present Perfect

Students practice Present Perfect grammar by writing about themselves, shuffling their papers, and guessing who is who.

This is an activity for a high school class that is reviewing Present Perfect grammar. This class isn't very fond of English class but I think that they don't do a lot of activities like this, so I'm hoping that this will make class fun for them.

It uses an activity pattern that I call "Shuffle and Guess." Students receive the form, fill out information about themselves, and then I gather up all of the papers, shuffle them, and pass them back out again to random students.

The students then read off the information on their paper to their classmates and guess whose paper it is. "She is a girl. She has been to Kyoto and Nara. She hasn't been to Hiroshima. She has seen Kimetsu no Yaiba many times. Who is she?"

When a student quizzes their partner, they write their partner's name under the "That's right!" section if their guess was correct, and under the "Sorry..." section otherwise.

I'm going to make this part of the new Activity Workshop section, so please let me know what you think! How do you think this could be improved?

    I've always loved this tye of quiz game. I usually use four questions and do it in three steps. First step write about themselves, second interview each other and learn about each other and finally collect the papers and do the quiz game with the class.
