PLEASE NOTE THAT MOST OF THESE, if not all, ARE NOT OFFICIALLY DECLARED HOLIDAYS BUT MORE LIKE PUNS FOR DATES
These are not totally unknown so students should not have a very difficult time with the questions. For example, every 29th of the month, many restaurants and meat stores in Japan have a "Niku No Hi (肉の日)" discount, (ni=2) (ku=9).
A simple quiz to practice months, ordinal numbers, and how to ask and answer questions for dates.
Slide 1: Title
Slide 2: Let's try!
Slide 3: (Practice Round, no point) When is strawberry day (いちごの日)?
Slide 4: (Answer) Strawberry Day (いちごの日) is January 5th.
Explanation: Strawberry day is derived from the pun of "ichi(1)" and "go(5)". This example will help students answer the next questions.
Slide 5: Let's start!!
Slides 6-29: Quiz. Students have 1 minute to think and choose the correct answer. What we would do after revealing the correct answer is have students explain it and we'll only explain the answers ourselves if necessary.
Slide 30: Well done!!!
You may change the level by removing the Japanese translation of the event/anniversary. I'll update this if I made any changes.
For people who don't have access to Kahoot, please check the PPT version of this quiz and read the slide notes for further instructions. As always, please click through the slides to be familiar with the animation timing. Also, feel free to replace the options if you find the quality really bad as I only snipped them from the original Kahoot game.
