Review the form of the first conditional on the board, e.g. If you listen carefully, I’ll tell you what to do. Tell the students that they are going to play a game of Bingo. Explain that each student will be given a card containing six boxes. In each box there is the ending of a first conditional sentence. Explain that you will read out the beginning of a sentence and that if a student has the correct ending on their card they can cross it off. The first student to cross off all six boxes shouts Bingo and is the winner. Give out the Bingo cards and ask the students to read their sentence endings quietly. Do the first sentence as a class to check that the students have understood. Read out the sentence beginnings (in any order) until one student shouts Bingo. Tick or number the sentence beginnings you have read out so that you can check the answers afterwards. Ask that student to read back their sentence endings to check they are correct.
