Fujikawaguchiko Lawson - aka Breaking the LAWson.

A points based game where you try to get illicit photos of a mountain and a combini for some reason.

Ever the man with his finger on the Zeitgeist, I made this activity to poke a bit of fun at the nonsense surrounding the Lawson in Fujikawaguchiko. To hell with the controversy let's dive in and make fun of everyone involved!

Students in teams, give them a task (such as translate a sentence, answer a question, sentence scramble or make a sentence) then they can pick a hole to take a photo through and note their points on the board. My classes are usually up to 9 teams so I made enough holes for each team to have a go for each question.

You can write your questions in the boxes provided or ignore them and read out the questions.
I want to make an oversize camera out of cardboard or buy a toy camera from a secondhand shop and then the students can use it to hold up to the hole they want to take a photo through (while I click with my mouse).

Update: I added a NEW HORIZON Unit 3 Scene 1 PowerPoint (It is ~ for ~ to ~).
+ I had some students try to take photos over the fence. This now gets them -5 points! [maniacal laugh]

Have fun with this one peeps! Keep creating!

      This looks fun, but I changed the title to 法律を犯そう!/Let's break the law! That'll get the kids' attention.
