Where are the Pokemon?!
In teams, students direct the ALT, or whoever is running the slideshow, through various school layouts searching for a specific pokemon.

Inspired: Pokemon Town Directions Game
Estimated time: 15-40 minutes
I made this activity for Let's Try! 2, Unit 8.
Currently, there are only 4 school maps. I haven't tried this activity out yet, but if it goes well I'd like to add more.
After splitting into groups and choosing the order, as groups, the kids will direct the ALT, or whoever is running the slides, from the start arrow. Once they are outside the room they think the pokemon they are currently hunting is in, they tell the ALT "It's in the ________."
The person running the slides clicks on the red square revealing the pokemon in that room. There are various pokemon in each room and I'm hoping the kids enjoy finding out what pokemon are where.
If you're hurting for time, you can go until the specific pokemon you're searching for is found or if you have plenty of time, you can keep going to see what pokemon are in the schools.
In the future, I'll probably try to spruce up the slides a bit more so that they don't look so drab.

Thank you for saving my life. This is such a boring unit.
Great Activity! the kids love it. Now, I just need to figure out why there are like 3 boys in every class that answer "restroom" every time.
My kids loved this, instead of teams we had the kids choose a location one at a time and then the class as a whole call out the directions together.
This was a nice template for me thank you! My area removed PPT last year so Its been tough translating things over to google slides where everything doesn't match up. I added my own twist of when you get to the room, you click on the red square and it takes you inside the room to see what Pokemon it is and what its doing, Kiddos loved it , they wanted to go to every room just to see what was inside!
Thanks for the game, it was a hoot! My kids tried to rationalize, "Hmm Pikachu likes to eat, so he must be in the lunch room!!"
This made my class fun. All the students loved it. Thanks
As another school district that doesn't use PowerPoint, would you be able to upload your version?
I've been trying to rework this presentation and I'm not able to get it to work
I mostly use Google Slides as well. Since Slides doesn't support clicking on individual objects, you may have to create individual slides for each room in each map and links on the map to those slides.
I used this with my fifth graders today, and they loved it! They loved Caterpie and some of them wanted to find it instead. Thank you for sharing this fun game!
