Practice ordinal numbers and colours as these crazy cars race to the finish!

Estimated time: 10-15 minutes

First two slides are the title slides. Let them play through until RACETRACK appears, then click to the next slide.

Slide 3 is a review of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

Slide 4 is the beginning of the races.

*Click once to bring the competators up to the start line. In groups or individually, let the kids pick their favourite to win.

*Once everyone is satisfied with their choices, tell the students to watch very carefully and click for the cars to race off. There is no need to click again, the cars will go through the finish line on their own. Some of the cars will do interesting things! (I tell the students to keep a careful eye, but I usually have to replay the slide a few times for the students to see who comes in first, cause they're all laughing and screaming at the cars)

*next slide will bring you to the winners circle. Ask who came in first? Second? Third? Forth? Really hammer those numbers. Ask the students to make a full sentance eg. Blue is first!

There are 4 rounds. Hope others can enjoy this!

      thank you for this, this is my first year as an ALT here in Japan...I was able to download this on my chromebook, but unable to play it, I am excited to share this with my students, but how does it play?

    6. Viking September 27, 2022

      @mrouzo It should just play automatically for the most part. You only need to click to trigger the cars up to the start line and click again once they get there. I've never played it on a chromebook before though, just the old laptop my school has provided me with, I hook it up to the TV get the kids to pick the 'winning car' and then let the fun begin. I'm sorry I can't be more help.
