BRIEF OUTLINE:  A pair game of deduction based on prepositions (in, on, under, by) that has them trying to find the room that their partner selected.





  1. Give the kids their activity sheet. Go over the prepositions (in, on, under, by), Christmas vocabulary, and the lines.
  2. Select one of the rooms by marking one of the grey boxes.
  3. Janken! The winner is A and the loser is B. A asks the question, "Where is your...?" and B answers "It's..." in relation to where it is in the room they selected.
  4. A then looks at their worksheet and chooses what room they think their partner chose by asking, "Are you in room (数)?" If they listened correctly, they have a 1 in 4 chance of choosing correctly based upon the location of the item they asked. If they are correct, they get a point. If they are wrong, A becomes B and B becomes A.
  5. They repeat this cycle until one of them correctly guesses their partners room. For each rotation that they make, they can raise their odds of guessing their partners room correctly by asking another question, (Round 1: 1 in 4 chance / Round 2: 1 in 2 chance / Round 3: 100%)
  6. Change partners and play again.
