Action Verb Charades | Present Continuous Tense Miming Game


Play charades to practice the present continuous tense and mime common action verbs. In this simple activity students mime one of the 60 different actions on their card while their classmates guess which verbs they are acting out.

 These colorful cards were designed for use in ESL and EFL classrooms, but they are also an ideal activity for ELL primary grades as well.
