Let's Make A Pizza

Activity for Let's Try 2 Unit 7: What do you want?

This is the same as "parfait what do you want" by Alora18 except that it's a pizza.
Almost same target language was used.

First, my JTE and I demonstrated to students how to use it, then asked for 2 volunteers to do the small talk using this PowerPoint. Then we shared this PowerPoint to the students, then they did the small talk by pair using their tablet. We gave them 10 minutes to do the small talk and they had fun doing it. When they are finished making pizza for each other, and there are few minutes left, they asked me if they can do it again, and we allowed them.

Target language used:
A:What do you want?
B: I want (tomato), please.
A: How many?
B: Three, please.
A: Here you are.
B: Thank you.

JTE and I walked around to make sure that everyone is using the target language while doing the small talk.

I used this last year when I was teaching in Shibuya where the students have PowerPoint installed in their chrome book. But for this year, I am teaching in Kawasaki and the students are using google slide in their laptop. So, maybe we can only use this for demoing, but students will use worksheet instead of PowerPoint. I don't know yet. Maybe some of you know how to use it in google slide? Please share your thoughts about this.

      Hi Hilda,
      You can make a PowerPoint file into a google slides presentation by creating a blank presentation in google slides, clicking on the ”File" tab, selecting "Import Slides", and dragging in the PowerPoint file - it looks like it worked well for me! Let me know if it works for you, if not I would be happy to share it via google drive, or send screenshots of the process!

      @eddyrogersiv, When you do that will the triggered animations work in google slides or does it just run the animations in a linear way? I don't have google slides set up on my work computer so I can't test it. When I tried before the triggers didn't work but that was awhile ago.

      I'm not able to test this at the moment as I'm still setting some things up with my PowerPoint, but from a brief look online it seems like there's still compatability issues with any of the more complex animation settings as Google Slides only seems to support basic animations and timings ("With Previous", "On Click", etc.), so I think you're likely to run into that issue still, unfortunately.

      We tried it but it didn't worked. If you can send screenshots on how to do it, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
