BRIEF OUTLINE: Students watch the Mumble penguin movie and fill-out the worksheet, possibly even surfing the Mumble website and allowing your students to play some exciting games.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • MumbleMovieQuiz worksheet
  • Computer room: This is optional but if you do decide to use it, before the lesson, make sure the computer room is available.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After seeing the movie, why not using the computer room for your next lesson? This is how you start:
    • On the main computer/teachers computer create main folder and name it “Happy Feet”.
    • Inside this folder create two sub folders and name them “2nd year” and “3rd year”.
    • Place one original copy of the Mumble quiz inside the “Happy Feet” folder, where students can easily access it from their own computers.
    • Once the students have opened the file from the main folder, they must now save it under his/her name, in English, in the respective subfolder. For example, a 2nd year student would save his/her quiz file in “2nd year” sub folder. This will make it possible for you to access each students quiz file from the main computer later on and make it nicely organized in one place.
  2. Now that each student has succesfully renamed and saved the quiz file, give them about 20 minutes to answer the questions.
  3. To answer the questions in the word file, students have to select text and change it to a different color.
  4. While students work on their assignments, walk around the classroom and help them.
  5. Once the time is up, check answers together.
  6. In the end have each student prints out their own quiz file, which you collect and grade and don`t forget about rewarding them. The answers are:
    • Q1 = b, dancing
    • Q2 = c, Antarctica
    • Q3 = b, fish
    • Q4 = a, birds

  7. The remaining time is for the students to surf on the internet freely, but only regarding the penguin and environment issue related topics. On the quiz file, you’ll find a link to the official movie site where students can play some games.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • If somehow using the computer room is out of the question, simply print out the quiz and hand it out to the students after the movie.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • The worksheet is for grade 1.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • If students are slow learners, this can easily become an hour long lesson.
  • Each student is already asigned his/her own computer and password in order to access. It`s best to check all this in advance.
  • Write the steps on how-to-access the main folder entitled Happy Feet on the blackboard. For example: My computer --> Heisei 20nen --> Eigo --> Happy Feet. Note: this is just an example. While the real situation on the computer network is different from workplace to workplace, the best way is to get yourself familiar with the computer room and the school network prior to the class. Ask your JTE to help you out if you are not familar with the system.
  • Some students may not be familiar with saving/renaming files, changing text color in a Word document, etc.If this is the case, a quick how-to computer lesson may be needed.In the optimal situation, the main computer in the computer room is connected to a projector, which should make a how-to crash course go more smoothly.
  • If you are not so confident in using a Japanese computer, ask your JTE to handle this section of the lesson.
