BRIEF OUTLINE: Students practice the grammar "Are you... / Yes, I am / No, I'm not" whilst trying to find who is Baikinman and who are the spiders. Then in round 2, they try to guess who is from Africa and who is from America.
 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Introduce this concept by drawing (or sticking magnets of) Anpanman's enemy Baikinman on the board and then 6 of his sidekicks, the spiders (in Japanese, kabi-runrun). Tell the students that in the class there is one Baikinman and 6 spiders. Their goal is to figure out who is who.
  2. Then, give each student a worksheet.
  3. To find out whose who, the students have to use the following English: "Are you Baikinman?" "Are you a spider?" "Yes, I am" "No, I'm not." You might want to practice these questions/answers with the class a couple times.
  4. The students put their heads down on their desk and the ALT walks around choosing Baikinman and the spiders. One tap on the shoulder = spider. Two taps = Baikinman.
  5. The students have 6 minutes to mingle, and use English to find Baikinman and the 6 spiders. They write the students names on the handout. If they can find them all, they can get a prize.
  6. If they enjoy the game (they usually do), proceed to Round 2. This time there is one African and six Americans. The English is: "Are you from Africa/America?" "Yes, I am." "No, I'm not."

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Use the same concept with different grammar and vocabulary. For example, "Do you like..."

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Make sure the students use English by banning Japanese during the game.
