One Piece Wanted Game

This is a fun finding game providing good speaking practice using who, what, when, where and how questions. The activity involves a PowerPoint and printable cards and is very easy to adapt.

Note: Some prior teaching of who, what, when, where and how questions may be necessary before playing this game. Otherwise you could take some time at the start of your lesson to practice how to say these words and what they mean.

Pre-prep:

Print and laminate the cards in word document (feel free to change the names, info and characters as you please, although make sure you change on the PowerPoint too), make sure there are enough for your class for each round (you should have 3 mini card decks when starting) and some spares in case one or two get lost. ALTs and teachers may want to join in too!

PowerPoint slides - For the One Piece wanted posters, you can put a picture of anyone in the black photo space and change the name and bounty price in the text box, the students loved it when we put pictures of ourselves in the wanted posters. The PowerPoint includes the questions required in speech bubbles to help the students, feel free to keep these on the board if they need help or challenge them taking them off.

Rules:

This game has 3 rounds, with each round requiring more questioning. Shuffle the cards for that round and give one to each student. Students are not allowed to reveal their card to anyone else. The aim is for the students to find the person who has the wanted card by asking the required questions. Set a time limit of approximately 5 minutes. If the students find the wanted person, they cannot say who it is until the end of the round. When the round ends, the lead can ask the students to raise their hand if they found the wanted person. Choose someone to say the name. Repeat this play for rounds 2 and 3.

Round 1 cards have 3 facts.
Round 2 cards have 4 facts.
Round 3 cards have 5 facts.
Make sure there is one wanted card for each round
