I made a standard past tense lesson for part 1 of this chapter.
Includes vocab/key expression PPT, mission impossible activity (instructions included in the PPT) and a worksheet.
Make sure to remind your students that the missing words in the mission impossible activity are all in the past tense.
Thank you to the other contributors to this book, I used a few of your ideas here and there.

I don't have "stellar" lessons, but the students got a kick out of this one. This is NOT my ppt, I found it on waygook and made some smallllllllllllll tweaks!

PPT "gif" game

Additional Handout (that I give to students, we also played a "zombie" game where students practice the dialog, and beforehad I secretly choose 6-7 students who are zombies and at the end of the game, those who have the zombie names are dead. Those who are alive get a "student dollar" (we have a dollar system in my class)).

Pictionary card game (We use mini whiteboards and students in their groups play pictionary. The guessers have to say a full correct sentence in English. Students love this)

I've been making after-school lessons from middle school books for my 5th and 6th elementary school students, I'm not sure if the Korean is alright on the slides.

Here's a few lessons I've used about past tense for this chapter. They tend to repeat quite a bit cos often I don't fit in everything in the first lesson so use it in the next. Also I usually spend 5-10 minutes on phonics at the start and I've left those in (could be useful).

Happy teaching

I played a line bingo with my students, went over the dialogue, then played this board game.

Print out the board for students in groups of 4-5.
Print out the cards on the 2nd page 2x for each board.
Have a die available or use a computerized die that the teacher controls every round.

Students roll the die and move forward. The student must use a past tense sentence to describe the picture. For example, "I played computer games," or, "I rode my bike." If the student lands on a question mark, the student must say what he/she has done last weekend.

Then, using cards from the 2nd page, student will answer the question of, "How was it?". After the student reads the card, the student will move ahead or back according the the instructions on that card. Then the next student goes.

My students already took the text and wanted to watch a movie, but found this game super exciting. It seems impossible  to actually finish the game.

Note: I am adding the word document file in-case someone wants to change to pictures. I prefer the pdf because I had the problem of all  the pictures shifting out of the board game boxes whenever I switched computers.

Here's my ppt for lesson 4.

For the 'challenge' part, when the music stops and the student who has the ball had to stand up. I got the rest of the class to ask the student "what did you do <time phrase on the screen>?'. I repeated this with the 'How was it?' I had 'fun, exciting, boring, great, fantastic, wonderful, okay, perfect, alright, good, terrible , awful and so-so' written on the board. I would strike out the word once a student had picked it as they are parrots and like to repeat the previous student. If a student intentionally passes the ball extremely slowly, I would stop the music so they would have to answer the question. If they did it slowly again, I would stop it straight away and make them answer the next one, in an attempt to go faster. Also it would be a good idea to say not to throw the ball across the room to a random student. but rather do it in a snake pattern so everyone will get the ball.
The  'Kevin's diary' activity was taken from the  자료실 section on the dvd, you can download it and its page 46+47.

hope this all makes sense. posting it in my 10 mins between class and dont have time to reread
