Conditional Links‏‎ – Conditional Activity

Conditional Links is a very simple activity with no preparation needed; it’s ideal to practice conditionals and can be used as a quick filler to do just that.

Simply write up on the board the first clause of any conditional, e.g.

If I won the lottery…

Choose a student at random and ask them to finish the sentence:

If I won the lottery… I would buy a Porsche.

Now ask another student to complete a new sentence beginning with previous clause:

I would buy a Porsche… if I could drive.

And another student creates a sentence with the previous clause:

If I could drive… I would visit my girlfriend.

And so on and so on ad infinitum!
