On the Weekend (At the Weekend in the UK): In/On/At Exercise

Prepositions are tricky words when you study a new language.  We use in, on, and at to describe times, as well as locations, and you’ll have to memorize the general idea, in order to use the correct word at the correct time.  Here is a description of my weekend activities, including the times, and the locations,  Try to choose the correct words at first, and then check my answers below.  Sometimes, either “in” or “at” will be ok to use.
