Thanks to "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" everything Indy Jones
is in fever pitch at the moment. This game comes from the final part of
"Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" where he has to make his
way across the cavern by jumping on the crumbling letters. Here we'll use
it to inject a bit of excitement into English or spelling class!
Using a piece of chalk, draw a series of octagons on the floor. For the phonics version of the game inside each one draw a letter of the alphabet. Make sure each letter appears at least once. For the "conversation" version of the game put a Genki English picture card or mini-card inside each octagon. e.g.
1. Put the kids in teams.
2. The first kid from one team comes forwards and puts on the the Indiana
3. For the phonics version the teacher shouts out a word. For the conversation
version you shout out a question.
Q: I love Indy..but where do you get the cool hat? And what happens if
a kid doesn't know the answer??? - Tracey
A: Just click on the hat on above, they sell them at Amazon! If the kids
don't know the answer, then just use your normal teaching technique. e.g.
you could help them with hints, ask their friends to help them or if you've
done GE rule number 2 then simply "fail" them so that they bounce back with the "losing
means try again!" line (and a smile of course!) - Richard
