  • Make one copy of the Game Board for each group.

Give a Game Board to each group. 


Ask students to get two coins for their group, and a space marker for each person.

How to use the coins:

Heads, heads = move 1

Tails, tails = move 2

Heads, tails = move 3


Students put their space markers on Start. The first student flips the two coins, moves the corresponding number of spaces on the game board, and follows the instructions.


  • Prompt = everyone in the group asks the student who landed on the prompt a question. The student answers the question using the second conditional.  

For example: there were 30 hours in a day

Everyone in the group = What would you do if there were 30 hours in a day? 

Student: (If there were 30 hours in a day), I would study more.


Students continue taking turns. The first student to reach Finish is the winner.
