So I was asked by my JTE to come up with an activity to cover the whole lesson, which would go over a lot of what they had learnt before the summer break. Since I've been on a little DnD binge lately, I thought of combining the two together. English + Dungeon crawling + Character cameos.
The rules are all in the PowerPoint. But base rules are:
Students are placed into groups of 3/4. They are each supplied with a character sheet and a team map. The 4 characters are different and each have 3 stats. HP, MP and STA. After the groups have chosen their characters, they will then play a quick game of janken. The winner is the team leader.
On the map there are points labelled a-h. These are battle points. At each battle point the students will have a face a situation and will have a question asked. "What do you do?" They then choose an option A, B or C. Each option uses simple English that has words they've been introduced to before and new simple English to finish the sentences. After 40 seconds have passed, the team leaders will stand up and read out their answer.(Rather than "C", it would be what option C was. For example: Beat them with fire magic.)
The winner is decided by who has the most points at the end of the game collectively in each team, OR the last team alive.
Both my JTE's seemed to really enjoy this and the kids even more so. I found that my 2nd year JHS had no problem with completing it (including the point counting at the end), within the 50 minute class time limit. However, my 1st years only got around halfway through.
All slides have Japanese included under the English to help them out (and the JTE), albeit it is Google translate, so I don't think its by any means perfect.
If the language doesn't fit your requirements, I'm more than happy for you to change it and hope it all works out for you as a fun activity/class!
Have fun guys, hope you like the idea, and have a great summer!.
