BRIEF OUTLINE: Students answer questions from various topics based on the popular TV show. The higher the point value, the more difficult the question is.





  1. After the class forms groups, draw a grid on the board and write the topics above every column. Then, write "10" in the box directly under each topic, the point value increases as you go downward.
  2. One student from each group stands up and plays Janken. The winner is the team that starts the game. The team can choose a topic AND point value.
  3. The question for that box is asked and any team can answer. The team can discuss the answer but the team member standing is the one who must raise their hand to answer it.
  4. The team that correctly answers the question receives the alloted points and chooses the next topic/point value.



  • To spice it up, try adding in a "Daily Double". Have certain questions be Daily Double questions. The students don't know which questions they are but if a Daily Double question is chosen, the team that answers the question can receive double the points.  (Note: Some PPT presentations have a daily double already included.)
  • Depending on question difficulty and class ability you could have students write the answers on small white boards, or scrap paper after the question is read. The amount of Japanese you allow is up to you.
  • Then the first group to hold up their correct answers first, get the points.


Teaching Suggestions:

  • Try acting like a real game show host to up the fun.
