Second Conditional - Partner Activity

This is a fast fun way to pair students for another activity. The bonus is that they get extra exposure to the target structure. Just print this page, copy on to colored paper if you want, cut the page down the middle and cut strips for each sentence. Students should walk around the room and find the missing half of their sentence. Combinations must be grammatically correct and logical. Remind students that they should pay attention to punctuation. This sheet has a total of ten sentences, which allows for twenty students. If your class size is larger than this, just duplicate one sentence for every two extra students.

As an alternative, you make multiple copies of this page, cut the same as above, divide students into groups, and give each group all the sentences to match.
