BRIEF OUTLINE: Students ask five questions and guess the secret identity of their group members.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Drill key words: thirsty, hungry, tall, short, Japan, boy, girl.
  2. Drill names, discuss and make it clear which names are Japanese.
  3. Model the game with the Japanese teacher.
  4. Play in groups.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Higher grades can ask different questions, like, "Do you have long hair?" or "Are you ugly?"

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Use the smart kids to get the ball rolling. The fun point of the game is where students have to guess the identity.
  • This goes well with Describe Them.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Expect a slow start. No all of them will understand. The ones that do, really enjoy the game and things go organically after that.
