BRIEF OUTLINE: Students choose between various popular characters to slowly whittle down which is the most popular.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Cards of popular people - the attachments below should provide you with some ideas. You will need to prepare as many cards of famous people and/or characters ahead of time as there are contestants.

Famous People

Biographies (Easy, Medium, Hard)

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Draw an elimination tournament bracket (like the one shown to the right) on the blackboard. Explain that there will be a competition to discover who is the most popular.
  2. Determine the order in which students will answer the question.
  3. Randomly pick two character cards and show them to the class. The student whose turn it is stands up and the class asks them, "Which do you like better?" The student standing must choose a card and answer, "I like ____ better." The famous person or character is moved forward in the bracket and advances to the next round.
    4. Shuffle and repeat.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Instead of picking two cards randomly, you or the JTE may select pairs that you know are particularly hard to choose between for certain students (Hello Kitty vs. Doraemon or Kumi Koda vs. Yui Aragaki).
  • Janken: Have two students stand up, show them two cards and have them play Janken. The winner gets to choose which card advances to the next round. The loser remains standing and plays janken with the next student in line.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Teach the students the target question, "Which do you like better?" and the answer, "I like ____ better." Make sure they understand this is a comparison game.
  • For larger class sizes, you may want to put students in groups to answer instead of individually, or have two different rounds going on at the same time.
  • It works best if everyone knows the people.
