Work in groups of three or four. Your partner will tell you about something they are likely or possible to do in the future. Tell them one consequence of that, e.g. “If you eat pork for lunch, your stomach will feel heavy all afternoon”. Another person in your group will then make up some consequences of that, e.g. “If your stomach feels heavy all afternoon, you’ll fall asleep at your desk”. Continue for four or five stages or until you run out of ideas, then the original person should say how realistic they think the final consequence and intervening stages are.
