- What would you do if… board game and one die per group of 3.
- Put the students in groups of 2 or 3, and give them a copy of What would you do if…? board game.
- Students now complete the blue squares with their own examples. If the verb is already given, students must use that verb in their example, e.g. What would you do if… you broke your friend’s phone?
- When the students have finished they pass their board game to the team/ group on their right.
- Students now go over ALL the examples written by their classmates to make sure they are grammatically correct.
- Check together as a class.
- Hand each group a die.
- Players take it in turns to throw the die twice – the first throw indicates which column they should use, and the second throw indicates which row, to obtain the question.
- When a player lands on a square all three players must answer the question from that square in as much detail as possible. Encourage students to ask each other additional questions to obtain more information.
- The game continues in the circle going left.
- At the end, ask the students to choose three questions they didn’t answer during the game and answer them in writing.
