Activity Overview

Students can practice the conditional tense by creating a storyboard about their dream vacation. Teachers can begin by having a discussion where students brainstorm answers to the prompt: "If I won the lottery, my dream vacation would be... " Then, students can create a narrative storyboard that describes and illustrates the different things that they would do and see on their "dream vacation" including: Where would they go? How would they get there? Where would they stay? What would they do? What would they eat? What would they see? Students can use speech bubbles within the illustrations and descriptions below the illustration to practice writing using the conditional tense. Teachers can have students present their storyboards when they are finished to include practice speaking as well as writing!
