I feel like I got this original file from someone and then changed it to work better for me. If that person is you, go you! All the credit to you.

I used this in the past after introducing the concept of the conditional statements through Sam Shah's great activity found here.

Students cut up these strips:

They look at how the original has changed to form a new statement {and look back at some kind of notes we've taken} and then they place them on the 'mat' {printed on pretty paper} in the correct place.

I show the answers when students are finished.

Students glue to mat, cut out mat, and it all magically fits in the INB.



  1. I would do more examples that already have "not" in the original conditional. Those are the ones that my students miss.

    1. That sounds like a great modification. :)

  2. In 1962, Kalyanji Bhagat started the Satta Matka. Rattan Khatri introduced the New Worli matka in 1964, with slight modifications to the rules of the game. Kalyanji Bhagat's matka ran for all days of the week, whereas Rattan Khatri’s matka ran only five days a week, from Monday to Friday.
    During the flourishing of textile mills in Mumbai, many mill workers played satta matka, resulting in bookies opening their shops in and around the mill areas, predominantly located in Central Mumbai. Central Mumbai became the hub of the satta matka business in Mumbai.
