One of the worksheets I have created was for the grammar point “be going to” for planned future. It was in fact so good that it was published at teachitworld.co.uk.
For the first three games you need an IWB or at least a computer. Display the grid and the students have to find the hidden treasure by creating sentences using “be going to”. This game is a wonderful drill in which the students will practise all the forms of the future form.
In the second phase of the lesson, the students receive the worksheets and they play a similar game in their pairs. After playing the two games, I believe it is time to explain the grammar of be going to. I do it by using the following presentation:
One of the explanations of BE GOING TO is in English and the other one is in Czech.
Then the teacher presents the pictures on the board and elicits what he/she is going to do this weekend. Then he/she displays the other pictures and students have to write the sentences into the grid.
In the last but one activity students play another communicative game. They draw their plans into the last grid and their partner then tries to guess their plans by using the “be going to” form.
At the end of the lesson students ask and answer the questions contained in the last activity.
I hope you will find this worksheet as useful as I do.
