The boy sleeping on his desk is (UPDATE)

Students try to identify a class full of slackers by listening or reading descriptions

I found this gem on here, but have had to update it abit. I've removed the rude word, made a slight fix to the pdf document answer sheet and added a powerpoint which has all the verbs for students to quickly reference.

I start out by handing out the worksheet A and worksheet B, explaining to the students that this is pair game. They must talk to thier partner and find the names of all the students by asking:
Q) 'Who is the boy sleeping on his desk?'
A) 'The boy sleeping on his desk is

I then go over all the verbs with the students by using the powerpoint.

Please see original post here for full instructions

    Might be worth noting that for the New Horizon textbooks the grammar used in this activity is 3rd year grammar. (Page 62)

    If you want to use this for 1st years present continuous grammar you should adjust the worksheet to read simple sentences like 'Who is sleeping on his desk?' / 'Ryoma is sleeping on his desk.'

    Rather than 'Who is the boy sleeping on his desk?'
