Cooking Mama - Where is it From?
A short powerpoint game to Introduce/review the phrase "Where is it from?".

Estimated time: 10-15min
Using the Powerpoint:
-Each dish has a number associated with it. Click on a dish at the main screen and use the target phrase with the food presented (Ex. Where are sausages from?).
-If correct, you can click the "Cooking Mama" icon in the lower left corner to return to the main screen.
-If incorrect, click the same button and it will return you to the food's page so students can try again.
-When you are finished, click on Mama on the main screen for the winning graphic.
-I have had students gather in groups of 4/5 and given them whiteboards. The teams have 20-30 seconds to guess where the food is from. Teams that get it correct earn a point.
-Same as above but split the class into two teams.
-I have uploaded a Powerpoint version of the game! Please let me know if there any bugs. :)
-I usually use Keynote to make powerpoint activities. However, in the future I'll try to upload a .pptx file along with the .key file on the same day.
-The .pptx file added has some slight changes including an individual "loser slide" for each question.
-(Keynote Only) - The file now has a few extra slides with a "sudden death" round featuring fries and their true origin just as a little joke at my expense. XD To access it just move to the next slide on the "dish selection" screen.
-Fries are, in fact, not from Canada. My sleep deprived self was thinking of Poutine the entire time I was making that. It has now been fixed. XD

This sounds cute! Is it possible to upload as a ppt doc? :)
Is there a way you can make the file a .ppt? I couldn't open it. On school laptops they usually use .ppt files.
You could use something like https://cloudconvert.com/key-to-pptx to convert the file.
It might not be a perfect conversion though, but it is free.
Lots of converters on the web, for example: https://www.zamzar.com/convert/key-to-ppt/
Just a small point, the picture of "dumplings" is actually Tortellini pasta from Italy, so it's a little confusing.
Um.. I would like some sources that fries are from Canada please :P Pretty sure they started in Belgium.
@Bonjure289, Noticed that this morning after I uploaded it XD. Had Poutine on the mind the whole time. Fixed.
Thank you to the users who recommended other converters. :) I've been using one but the conversion usually removes some features that are exclusive to keynote. I'll give the others a try next time. Thanks again!
Canada!? Aren't chips from Belgium?
Hmm, poutine. Oh Canada, taking something as tasty and unhealthy as French fries and doubling down.
Hahaha I love this! Though Apple pie from America is controversial given that it was brought over from europe, likely the UK. But then what food did America invent? Cheese burgers perhaps?
I like the powerpoint, but by process of elimination the later questions get too easy. I changed/added flags to make it a little harder.
