Name Game

Name as many things as you can to answer the question or prompt.

Students will be divided into teams. Students will need whiteboards, markers, and dry erasers. There will be questions/prompts to answer. Students have 2 minutes to think and write as many names/answers as they can. The team that has the most names/answers wins the round. Review the grammar point beforehand if necessary (you can use the 例えば/example slide). This game is very flexible in terms of how to play and what it can cover. I have used it for both elementary and middle school. Depending on the class level I allow them to write in Japanese (hiragana/katakana).

Game adjustments:
If you don't have computer access you can write the prompts on the board or just say them.
You can extend time by giving your own answers and/or making the students say complete sentences using the grammar point.

*Fixed mistakes in 2年 Unit 7 powerpoint, even though I recommend changing slides to suit your class since some questions are specific to my area. Have fun!
