BRIEF OUTLINE: This is a simple King of Janken type game in which the students look for people that have the same card.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After handing each student a flag, tell them to remember their country but to keep it a secret.
  2. The students stand up and find partners. The pair plays Janken and the winner gets to ask the question: "Are you from...?"
  3. If the loser answers "no," the students have to have new partners and the process starts again. If the loser answers "yes," the loser has to stay in line behind the winner as they go in search for their next partner.
  4. In the end there will be one 'line/snake' for each country with the student that kept winning Janken at the head of the line. That person is the 'head of the country'.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • In order to allow the students behind the 'head of the country' some speaking practice, you could have the 'head' rotate to the back of the line once a new student is connected.
  • This can be done without the King of Janken variation. It would just be a normal Janken game in that case.
