Students use prompts on a board game to talk about unreal situations in the future. A speaking activity using the second conditional.
Grammar: Second Conditional
Time: 30 minutes
- Make one copy of the Game Board for each group.
Students get into groups of 4 or 5 people.
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 = student on left uses the prompt to ask a question to the student who landed on the space. The student answers the question using the second conditional.
For example: there were 30 hours in a day
Student on left = 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.
