Here are some reading comprehensions and exercises to practise the past simple tense: there's gap fill, correct the errors, unscramble the words, write up the paragraph from a series of pictures. There is a full key on page 2, which could be used as part of the exercise, or to model similar activities. I love this template, which is by PhilipR.
