2 fun games: Paper Airplane game and Connect 4
« on: November 23, 2010, 03:08:21 pm »
I got the idea for the paper airplane game from this site: http://iteslj.org/games/
and i got the connect 4 game from dave's esl cafe.

They are pretty self explanatory and I'm posting these 2 games because they've been quite a success with my middle school classes.

Paper airplane game: (this one can take a whole class)
for beginners: make teams and have them make their paper airplanes. then have them choose a number. that student will have to make a complete sentence using the word and/or picture as they see on the ppt. Once that student have successfully formed a sentence, go back to the target and let the student throw the paper airplane at the target. S/he will receive the amount of points as they hit.
Advanced: For these students, I simply came up with a list of 20+ Korean trivial questions. if they answer correctly, they can throw the plane at the target. I gave my students 3 tries when they miss.

Connect 4: (can take 15-20 mins)
2 teams. Each square has a verb in it and the student has to choose the square and form a sentence using that verb in past tense (or whatever you want). If they get it right, they will get their square. you can make it harder by forming a question or negative sentence using irregular verbs.

Hope you guys like these as this is my first time posting my own ppt creations on waygook.

Thank you for the paper airplane game! My students (all boys middle school) love making paper airplanes. I'm sure it will be a hit!
