BRIEF OUTLINE: Students use colors and shapes to draw their own personal flags and then after the ALT collects all the flags, students listen to hints and raise their hands if they think the flag being described is theirs.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Teach or review "colors and shapes" (origami paper is good to use for colors)
  2. Give students the handout and explain that they will draw their own flag using different colors and shapes. I give them 15 minutes for this.
  3. Collect the papers, explain to the students that you will now give them hints about one of their flags, they should raise their hand if they think the flag being described is theirs. Model with the HRT if you have trouble explaining. Students are amazingly good at understanding the hints! In fact, I find it's rare that a student is mistaken about their own flag. Since there will only be a little less than 15 minutes for this step, you will only be able to get through giving hints for about 7 flags or so. Here are some examples of hints you can give: "There are two green stars. There is one yellow diamond. There are three red triangles." Etc.
     

VARIATIONS:

  • If you have lots of time--you probably don't--you could introduce the colors by giving hints for them and having students guess the color. It's possible to do that with the easier shapes as well. "What shape is a pizza?" "What shape is a chocolate bar?" Etc.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • If the Japanese teachers you are with have some ability in English, you can suggest to them that they give hints for the rest of the flags in their own classes when you aren't there.
  • I suggest that you give students a "present" of a word search puzzle with a focus on colors and shapes. I like to use the website "armoredpenguin" to use their free word search generator. It's easy to use. Just make sure to choose "A4" for the paper size.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Don't spend too much time introducing the shapes and colors (having them all up on the board before class starts help a lot), this is best used as a review.
