Fujikawaguchiko Lawson - aka Breaking the LAWson.

A points based game where you try to get illicit photos of a mountain and a combini for some reason.

Ever the man with his finger on the Zeitgeist, I made this activity to poke a bit of fun at the nonsense surrounding the Lawson in Fujikawaguchiko. To hell with the controversy let's dive in and make fun of everyone involved!

Students in teams, give them a task (such as translate a sentence, answer a question, sentence scramble or make a sentence) then they can pick a hole to take a photo through and note their points on the board. My classes are usually up to 9 teams so I made enough holes for each team to have a go for each question.

You can write your questions in the boxes provided or ignore them and read out the questions.
I want to make an oversize camera out of cardboard or buy a toy camera from a secondhand shop and then the students can use it to hold up to the hole they want to take a photo through (while I click with my mouse).

Update: I added a 3rd grade NEW HORIZON Unit 3 Scene 1 activity (It is ~ for ~ to ~)
+ 1st Grade NEW HORIZON up to Unit 3 Part 1 question word review (when, where, what, who and how)
+ 1st Grade NEW HORIZON Unit 3 Part 3 How many ~ ? activity
+ 2nd Grade NEW HORIZON Unit 3 Part 1 infinitive adverbial
+ I had some students try to take photos over the fence. This now gets them -5 points! [maniacal laugh]
+ I changed the final slide to really trigger the fear

I have been on ALTopedia for three years and this activity is set to become my must upvoted activity in the less than 2 weeks it has been up. Thanks for all the love peeps! You have made an old man very happy!

Have fun with this one peeps! Keep creating!

      This looks fun, but I changed the title to 法律を犯そう!/Let's break the law! That'll get the kids' attention.

      This is absolutely hilarious, every single JTE I have shown this to has thought its the funniest thing ever and Im just mad I can`t take credit. Used is recently in a higher level JHS 3rd Grade class and managed to catch one kid shouting "my rights" as he got a -5. Incredible work!

    13. jojo27 June 17, 2024

      Hilarious! Thank you!

    14. jiggswalsh June 18, 2024

      @GaeilgeAmee That is wonderful! Did they shout it in English?!

    15. GaeilgeAmee June 19, 2024

      @jiggywalsh They did! They`re an unusually high level class with a great sense of humour, and are very prone to asking me how to say quite random things in English so they can use them to be funny in class. We also had a few "nooo my insta" shouts after some -5s!

    16. jiggswalsh June 19, 2024

      @GaeilgeAmee That has made my day. Thanks for sharing!

      This is the most hilarious thing I've seen since joining Altopedia. You now have the distinction of being one of three people (I think) I've taken the time to upvote and comment on. I can't wait to show this to the teachers and kids.
      Also the commenter who changed the name to 法を犯そう! knows what's up haha.
