OUTLINEBingo for the Midori Station activity. Followed by a map activity.





  1. Play bingo. Review the vocabulary and have students write the words in random order in the blank squares. When most people have bingo I ask who hasn't gotten a bingo yet and have them request words with "Could you say _____?". 
  2. For the map activity, after we practice the page in the book and go over the locations vocabulary, I put them in pairs. One student gets a map and the other the printed directions. Students then practice giving and following directions.


  • Bingo
    • I have the kids write the Japanese in the dotted boxes at the bottom. Then I review each one with them. Then, and this is unusual - I know, I have them write the Japanese in the top bingo grid. When we play I have them fold the sheet so they can only see the Japanese. I say the word in English and they circle the Japanese word. Many people disagree with this and have them write English. You are free to do it however, but I have found this helps reinforcement.
  • Map activity
    • Have students decide their own locations and even change the locations to anything they want.
    • Halfway through announce there is construction and some road is blocked.
    • Tell them they have to go through at least two lights to get somewhere.
