BRIEF OUTLINE: A mechanical practice game to practice "Will you...?"

 

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • FutureWorldCup2010 attachments: Each pair receives one copy of the soccer field and Jabulani ball.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After breaking the class into pairs, each pair receives a ball and soccer field. The ball is placed in the center of the field and the pair plays Janken.
  2. The winner "passes" the ball in the direction of the arrows. The passer then asks the defender the next question. The defender answers, and they play Janken again. The winner then "passes" the ball.
  3. Continue until someone scores.
  4. Put the ball in the center and play again.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Make a "game clock". Before the game starts, tell the class when the game will end and write the time on the board. Give them a 2-minute warning. Knowing that time is ticking away will add excitement, especially in the last two minutes.
  • You may have students who just play Janken and don't practice the target. To avoid this, model the rules of the game in front of the whole class and show them that if they don't use English, the other player gets to "pass" the ball automatically without having to janken
  • If you don't want to use the Jabulani balls, feel free to use anything for a 'ball', but keep in mind that realism usually increases motivation and desire to do the activity.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • If you use the Jabulani soccer ball cut-outs, some of them may "disappear" after the game, so be sure you have enough for the next class. Also, I suggest printing the balls on thick paper.
