Future Game Board

Students use the prompts on the board game to talk about the future. Students play the board game in groups.

Level:  Intermediate

Topic:  Future

Grammar:  Going to

Time:  30 minutes


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



Ask the students to get into groups of 4 or 5 people.


Give one game board to each group. 


Ask the students to get two coins for the 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


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


  • Prompt = use the prompt and going to or will to talk about the future.
    • For example: I'm going to go shopping tomorrow.

  • Arrow = answer the question, then follow the arrow to jump ahead on the game board.
  • Trade places = trade places with another person.
  • Go ahead = move the designated number of spaces forward on the game board.
  • Go back = move the designated number of spaces backward on the game board.

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