Snake Game - 6年Unit7 (ES)

Worksheet for a pairs janken racing game to review/practice vocabulary. Theme: school events

How to play:

-Give one worksheet to a pair of students.
-One student starts at the head, the other starts from the tail.
-Students say the vocabulary word on each space simultaneously as they both try to get to the other side.
-When students land on the same space, janken.
-Winner continues to the next space, loser goes back to their starting space. When they meet again, janken.
-Game ends when one student reaches the opposite end of the snake from where they started.


-The easiest way to explain the game is by demonstrating with the JTE (with the worksheet on the TV)
-Print worksheet double sided (when available) so students have another variety and the game can last longer
-Have students play with others around them for new competition (after a few rounds with their original partner)
-Have students try with the worksheet upside down so they start at the opposite end as before
-Have students turn in the worksheet at the end of class so you can use them in the future

Who doesn't love drilling vocab while playing janken?!?!

(partially inspired by old Englipedia game called Bridge/Snake Line/Janken Line)
