BRIEF OUTLINE: is activity consists of two smaller activities: guessing and interview game.





  • First activity - "Are you ______?"

    • This is a guessing game where the students try to guess the person their partner chose.
    • After choosing their secret character, s
      tudents janken to see who goes first.
    • Take turns asking "Are you ______?" Their partner replies with, "Yes, I am. / No, I'm not."
    • The first student to guess the correct character is the winner.
  • Second activity - "Are you from ______?"
    • Review country names with students. Either allow the students to choose a country OR give each student a country. If you choose the second option, simply copy and paste the country flags from the worksheet over into a Microsoft Word document and print out enough flags for each student.
    • Students should interview their classmates:
      • A-san: Are you from Canada?
      • B-san: Yes, I am. / No, I'm not. I'm from ___________ (name on country card).
    • Students record names under the correct country.
    • Allow for as much time as you feel is needed.
    • When time is up, the students with the most names, the students with names in all 6 countries, etc are winners.


    •  First activity: There are two ways to play this game - pair up students OR play as a class by getting volunteers to come to front of class and other students ask questions.
