BRIEF OUTLINE: Competing in teams, students try to guess where Wally is hiding.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Introduce/Practice "places" vocabulary using your method of choice.
  2. Bring out your Wally cards. Ask "Who is this?" Chances are they will be familiar with the character.
  3. Practice the phrase "Where is Wally?" and the phrase "At the ________" using the previously practiced vocabulary.
  4. Divide students into teams by columns, lunch groups, etc.
  5. Ask students to close their eyes.
  6. Place the magnetized Wally cards at various places on the board, and then place the flash cards ON TOP of the Wally cards.
  7. Students open their eyes.
  8. Lead the students in a say-know of "Where is Wally?".
  9. One student from each team ventures a guess using "At the ______." With each guess, remove the suggested card with a dramatic flourish. If they guess correctly, they win a point for their team. Incorrectly, no point.
  10. At the end of each round, have students close their eyes again and rearrange the cards.
    12. Guessers rotate each round so everyone has a chance to play/practice.
    13. Add up the scores at the end of the last round and declare a winner.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Advanced students: Practice other "Where?" questions, prepositions, and full sentence answers such as "Where is he going?" "To the bank." "Where was he?" "He was at the bank."
  • Use multiple characters (from the Where's Wally OR other universes) to practice different pronouns.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Make sure the Wally cards are small enough to be well hidden behind the "Places" cards.
  • Ask the JTE to help you keep score, and make sure students aren't peeping as you rearrange the cards.
  • Feel free to ham it up with this activity. Think gameshow host.
  • When we did this, we had 6 groups of 3-4 students. This seemed to work quite well for a 20 minute activity. While you can certainly do it with more students per group, i don't think I'd recommend more than 6 groups.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Make sure you test that the magnets are strong enough so that the flashcards stay put on the board before your lesson. You can always use extra regular magnets if they don't, but this can waste time and be a distraction when they come crashing down as you move cards around between rounds.
  • I wouldn't recommend this for younger students, as they can get restless between rounds and are more prone to peeking.

 

COMMENTS:

  • I'm American, so I always grew up with "Where's Waldo?" Not only was I surprised that he is popular in Japan and goes by "Wally", but this is in fact the original character name as created by UK cartoonist Martin Handford! The more you know!
