BRIEF OUTLINE: This is a simple guess-where-a-character-is game.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Pictures of famous people that the students know

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After reviewing the grammar and vocabulary, divide the class into vertical rows.
  2. As the first student from each row, gets up and comes to the front of the class, draw a square on the chalkboard for each row. The students who came to the front then turns to face the class so they can't see the chalkboard. Place a famous character in/on/by/under each of the squares. I use, Super Mario characters but even a stickman drawing should be fine.
  3. One by one the students who are representing their team should ask, “Is Mario XXX the box? Their row should either respond, “Yes, he is!" or "No, he isn’t!”
  4. The first student to guess to accurately guess the location receives a point for their team. That students get to sit down and the next student comes to the front. Make sure you change the location of the character. The other students must stay at the front of the class until they guess the location.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Change the character's name to keep things interesting.
