BRIEF OUTLINE: Students introduce which country they are from based upon the flag they are holding.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Flags: Each group receives 6-10 flags. Cut each flag into thirds and put them into an envelope. Flag sites: 01 / 02 / 03.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After splitting the class into groups, hand out the envelopes and have the students distribute the strips of the flags evenly.
  2. After jankening to see which student starts first, they ask the student to the left,
    "Where are you from?" The askee says "I'm from..." and then lays down a section of the flag they said.
  3. The first person to lay down another section of that flag earns two points, and the person to complete the flag receives one point.
  4. Play continues until all strips have been played.
  5. The person with the most points is the winner.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Review the flags' names before you start the activity.
