How to teach this lesson plan

Before teaching this lesson, it is expected that you have a good understanding of what the present perfect simple tense is. You should know that it is used to describe events that took place in the past, which have a result now (in the present). I recommend that you review the lesson plan before teaching it so that you have a firm understanding of the concepts and activities it includes. 

This lesson starts with examples of sentences in different tenses. This is a great chance for you and your student(s) to review the present simple and past simple tenses. This also provides you with the opportunity to introduce a sentence in the present perfect simple tense. From here, you and your student(s) will work on analyzing and differentiating between types of tenses. When teaching this portion of the lesson, it is helpful to ask students to form their sentences in the present perfect simple tense.
