New Game: Danger Island!

Welcome to Mido Farid’s game of the week.

It’s perfect to try with the Treasure Adventure lesson – with a touch of danger!

1. Draw a Treasure Island (or use the map picture card)Β on the board and ten squares underneath it.

2. Draw a shark on eitherΒ side of the island.

3. Divide the class into two teams. Β One team has the squares on the left and the other teamΒ has the right squares.

4. Place a magnet for each team on the middleΒ squares.

5. Ask the first two students of each team a question using today’s English (e.g. Getting the kids to say “There’s a ….” or asking “What can you see?” whilst pointing to a Treasure Adventure picture card) and if they answer correctly theyΒ rock, paper, scissors.

6 . The loser moves their magnet to the next square – towards their shark’s mouth!

7. Keep playing till one team’s magnet goes inside the sharks mouth!

Of course the best exercise for Treasure Adventure is to get your kids to draw their own pictures of a Treasure Adventure and present it to the class using the lyrics from the song!

    Both the game and the picture presentation are great exercises …too bad I’m done with this school year! Will keep in mind for Septembe…since our very last lesson was the treasure adventure!

    Finally with the helpf of the patient Richard I was able to download CD 11 yesterday. What can I say? Did I like it? No, I adored it!!! Teaching at 11 elementary schools IS exhausting, however with GE it is rewarding and I thank you, thank you, thank you for what you are doing.

    Keep up your fantastic GE creativity! I also woud like to thank you for letting people have fun while learning other languages. Thank you!!!

    I am writing a separate comment on Mido’s game (actually all of his games)! Mido, you cannot imagine how my kids admire and love, look forward to each of your games. I am sure they would love to meet you in person, as you bring surprise to their faces, though they are not new to the world of games.

    Thank you for being so unique and incredible. Big thank you from my students!
