I. Warm-up

[This should be an easy noticing activity that introduces students to the target grammar. The formatting of this section may need to be adjusted. Here are five activity types you can do in this section: 1. Open-ended wh-questions that contain the target grammar feature; 2. a 'What does each sentence have in common?' activity wherein highlighted portions of each sentence contain the same grammar feature; 3. a 'Complete the sentences with your own words.' activity wherein the target grammar feature is present but words that either precede or follow it need to be filled in; 4. a 'What do the words in boldface refer to?' activity (works well with pronouns); 5. a 'Check the complete/correct/compound/complex sentences' activity or a variation of it.]
