Pikachu! Where are you?

Chase Pikachu around the city and then let the kids give it a try themselves

Inspired by: Tell me where the park is!

Inspired: Where is Pikachu? School Pokemon Hunt

Estimated time: 30-40min

Special thanks to shinjirarenai for providing this lovely map that offers so much potential

Start by going over the city location vocabulary in the powerpoint and then start clicking. The goal is to catch Pikachu as he runs away from you around the city. As you go, have the students tell you which direction to go (Turn left, Turn right, He is by the ________, go straight, etc....)

Once you finish the game, hand out blank worksheets and have them fill them out with city vocab. The location doesn't matter, so don't worry if it doesn't match your map. You can also hand out tiny pikachus that are attached to the very back of the powerpoint, or have them use things from their pencil case if you hate cutting stuff out.

After they finish, have them pair up and take turns putting the pikachu in different spots and have them practice their directions starting at the black spot.

    This is amazing! My students just finished doing Let's Try Unit 8: My favorite place. Also next week is the Christmas lesson. I'd like to make a Santa version of this to throw inside of a power point to keep the kids engaged during the Christmas lesson. Any resources you could point me toward for making my own power point like this?

    Hey @Nickteacerh. Just saw your message. I probably missed the christmas lesson, but to make stuff like this I just google different pictures and sprites. The pokemon trainer was built by a friend, but the rest was picked apart here and there from across the web.

    This is amazing!!!!! Thank you for making it so aesthetically pleasing, and timed perfectly to work with testing the students. I can't wait to use this IRL in January :D

    This is absolutely incredible! If you have any advice for how it works or how it can be edited/changed please let me know, I would love to use this as a base for other activities and games that I`ve been thinking about

    If you want to know how it works, pull it up on powerpoint and look at the animations that are added. The sprites can be found online with enough digging. The rest is just timing. I was fortunate that someone already made the map. I just spiced it up a bit
