Students cut out the 6 weather cards in the back of their LG2 textbook and write their names on the back of each card. (My JTE had students cut the cards before my class, saving time).
-Each student starts with their own 6 cards.
-Janken with another student.
- Janken Winner asks, "How's the weather?"
- Janken Loser replies, "It's __________." and gives up that respective card to winner.
Students walk around class and Janken with each other, losing and collecting weather cards until time's up.
Students with zero cards are out and must sit down.
After the game, have students return cards to their owners, so hopefully they wrote their names on the backs of the cards!
You can also reward whoever gets the most cards with a sticker or something!
Some students figured out that they won't be out if they hoard their cards without challenging anyone, so watch out for that lol.
This game can be applicable to any topic or grade if you don't mind cuting dozens and dozens of cards. I also use it for Halloween "Trick or Treating" since the kids don't get real candy :'(
If anyone has an interesting variation to this, I would love to hear it!
