BRIEF OUTLINE:  Students ask what time it is in different countries around the world to try and lose their cards.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • TimeOut worksheets - there are two: game board and clock worksheet.  Prior to class, fill in the clock worksheet with times.  Then, print out enough worksheets for each group.  Finally, cut up the clocks into squares.  If you want to save yourself some work, don't cut up the clocks.  Have the students do it in class. 

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Give a game board to each group in the class. The students should be placed in groups of 3-4 students.
  2. Hand out one set of blank clocks to each group and have them divide the clocks evenly amongst themselves.  If there are three students, then each student should get six cards.
  3. Have the students janken to see who goes first. The person whose turn it is must ask what time it is in a city that they do not have. The other players look to see if they have that city and time in their hand. The student that does have that city must answer the question, then place it clock down on the game board in the appropriate square.  Then, it goes to the next person.
  4. The students play until one student has lost all of their cards.

 

 

VARIATIONS:

  • The opposite can work as well in which the last student with cards in their hand wins.
  • You can make a draw deck as well, so if a student does not have the card that is asked for, the person asking must draw. (This may help if there are still cards remaining after being dealt out.)

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • It is best to use this activity for three or more students. If the class has less than three students, add yourself and/or the JTE if needed.
  • If it does not work at first, rework it to fit your style.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Walk around the class and make sure each student is not saying just the country and the time. The students must say ''What time it is it in ____ ?'' and the other student must say ''It is _____.''
