Quick questionnaire

This idea is quick and simple and easy to adapt to just about any tense.
After discovering the tense and form, The students copy and add questions to the following grid:

Here we are practising “ago”, but you can use any question form, “can you…”, “do you…” etc.
Once they have added their own questions they go around the class collecting answers, at this point the class looks something like this:

After they have completed their grids,

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/726/61393592/files/2015/01/img_2418.jpg
We have a whole class feedback session where the students tell me what they have learnt about their classmates.
Once they have done this activity a couple of times they become pretty quick at drawing the grid and adding their questions.
Sometimes I use the information to elicit written phrases for homework.
