**TIME CHANGE, April 4th, 2013**



Change the time (verb tense) in the following sentence; replace any time clue words as necessary.

The Easter Egg hunt proved to be more difficult than usual this year because of the amount of snow that is still on the ground. As a result, the hunt was held indoors. The children stayed warm and dry; however they did not stay clean. They were happily eating chocolate eggs and getting chocolate on their hands, faces, and clothes.

Note that there is more than one way to do this, and each student should choose a different time frame with different time clues.

The Easter Egg hunt will have proved to be more difficult than usual by the end of this month because of the amount of snow that is still on the ground. As a result, the hunt is being held indoors. The children stay warm and dry; however they do not stay clean. They are happily eating chocolate eggs and getting chocolate on their hands, faces, and clothes.
