Imperative Push-ups and Stretches

ESL Imperatives Activity - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking - Pre-intermediate - 25 minutes

In this entertaining imperatives activity, students put instructions in order and then take it in turns to give and follow instructions with a partner. The students are divided into two groups (A and B) and each student is given a corresponding worksheet. The students' task is to give a partner instructions on how to do something, but first they must put the instructions in order. Students look at their worksheet and put the words in each sentence in order. Then, they write numbers (1 to 10) on the lines next to the sentences to put the instructions in the correct order. When the students have finished, the answers are checked with each group and the students identify the imperative verbs. Students then pair up with someone from the other group. Next, Student A reads their step-by-step instructions to Student B who listens and follows what is said. Afterwards, the two students swap roles so that each student has a turn reading and following a set of instructions.
