    1. I once used this activity in my class with different topic, that is about Present and past participle. The students were to listen to me reading sentences while exploring the map. If the answer is present particple, they have to go UP, and if the answer is past participle, they have to go DOWN. The following here is the examples of the activity

      1. His story was really (interest).
      2. We are (confuse). The directions aren’t clear.
      3. The seminar is (bore).
      4. The concert was (disappoint).
      5. I was (fascinate) by the scenery

      1. You got a very bad score. That’s disappointed.
      2. The film is frightened.
