Animal Crossing Travel

Activity for "be going to" / future

Inspired by (aka: completely ripped off) the 'Immigration' activity from here, but made it 'Animal Crossing New Horizons' themed.

I used this for the grammar 'be going to'.

  • Show the presentation so the students can follow the steps.

  • Students complete the 'landing cards' (We just did "I want to go to..." for the previous lesson, so they could look back on this for inspiration.)

  • Hand out the passports, fold into fours and complete the inside.

  • Practice the following as a class. Then students collect four signatures in their passport. (Tell them not to forget to bring their landing cards to remind them of their answers!)

A: Passport, please.
B: Here you are.
A: Where are you going?
B: (place)
A: How long are you going to stay?
B: (length of time)
A: Where are you going to stay?
B: (accommodation)
A: Thank you!
B: Sign please!

When they answer, they get a sign in their visa section.

All materials are customizable, so you can edit for some other grammar points.

      Thanks for this! I think it improves on the original activity a lot. I made a blank square on the passport so the students can doodle their face on it. :)

      This was great! The JTE really liked the real world example for this activity. Kids liked it too, and recognized the game. Thanks for sharing!

      I loved your use of GIFs and images from the game. I used your PPT to make a game adjacent to what you have so that students could practice "I'm going to (country) to ~ ~" so students could practice infinitives. Thank you so much for sharing this!!
