World cup points template
« on: May 11, 2014, 07:36:52 pm »
Tomorrow marks one month until the football World Cup in Brazil.

Here is an adaptable blank template for a points game for whatever themed activities you might choose.


P.S.

1)If you are one of the heathens who uses the word 'soccer' to refer to football, it's akin to farting in the Queen's face, so kindly stop it old chap.
(See attachment 3 for additional guidance )


2) If you want to continue to use the word 'soccer' please don't download this.

FYI.

The word "soccer" is an English invention. We Americans merely carried on the tradition.

Making a PowerPoint close to 40MB excluding sounds is akin to farting in the queen's face.

And on calling American Football by the name Football, remember that it's based on this game called Rugby Football (which more recently has been changed to just Rugby).

There are 4 sections

Green, Yellow, Blue and Gold(ish)

Gold and Blue simply over type a question. The world cup symbol reveals and answer box just over type this box as well.

Yellow section, simply over type the target language in the number order.

Green. Simply enter target language randomly, there is an answer field again that needs to be over typed.

Hope this helps.

I made it into a trivia game. Kinda didnt really know what to do with some of it. Probably needed some suggestions, but just handing a little back and thanking OP :) I reckon if youve got some groups, get them all to try and answer the questions on a mini white board for each team rather than one at a time. Have to test to see how it works...

Compatible for 2003. Possibly missing music alas. I should maybe fix that... :)

You might want to edit a couple of the questions to your local. I think theres one or two about the Chinese Super league in the football trivia section. Basically has one section for world cup trivia. One for football trivia. One for odd one out. And one for comparative/superlatives (country facts). Belgium is the smallest country, and costa rica is the happiest if you wanted to know :)

I also ninjad another ppt from the elementary section and tidied it up. It doesnt go into to TOOOOOO many details, but if used prior to the game, should at least help the students that know nothing about football make some notes. The background is garish because its kinda funny to me. Feel free to change at your own discretion :)

Some answers (because i now realise they might not be easy)

Poorest country: Ivory Coast
Happiest: Costa Rica
Most populated: Brazil
Largest: Brazil
Smallest: Belgium
Longest work hours: Korea

Odd one out:
1. Argentina: not in Europe
2. Costa Rica: Not in Africa
3. China: Not playing in world cup. Or er france if you want it simple.
4. Portugal: Havent won world cup.
5. Brazil: Other countries first language is English
6. Japan: Other countries speak Spanish.

Rest should have answers. Sorry, number 3 is now bugging me for having two correct answers :) Again, something you might want to fix :)

Soccer (as we know it) is an English invention period. Not just the word.

In the World Cup Power point is says there's only 4 countries in Africa that are playing in the world cup, last time I check the Ivory Coast was in Africa too "Cote' D'ivoire."
