I made these little flag cards for a quick game for "Where are you from?"
You print out 2 copies of the sheet, cut them out & laminate them and then give the class cards so that each country has a match. They walk around asking "Where are you from?" "I'm from _____." When they find their match, they win. Obviously it works better with large classes, and if you have an odd number of students you can hold one of the cards yourself.

I made these and I don't think my co-teacher wants to use them. :( But the kids have enjoyed this type of game in the past.

Elementary Grade 5--Where are you from??? (Review Game)
« Reply #1 on: March 16, 2012, 02:47:01 pm »
I got this powerpoint from another teacher and modified it to what my 5th grade classes were learning. So props to the person who first started it  :D

Anyway, hope this helps anyone learning the countries (America, Korea, Japan, Italy, Spain, China, England, Mexico, and Canada). I also have them reviewing how to say I am or (I'm) American, Korean, and so on.

Hi guys.  Disregard the filename... I used this for a 6th grade lesson in a different school, but you can use it the same way as it is a good review of countries with appealing pictures for kids.  Hope this is helpful! 

(Since there are very few posts in here, I would suggest checking out the 6th grade textbook section and looking for "where are you from" lessons.  Much of the material can be adapted to this textbook)

Here is a powerpoint for the Learn and Talk for Page 11 - it just introduces the same six flags and country names. Also, a "Where is this person from?" quiz, and simple maps with a few countries named on them. The idea is to have each kid choose one country to be "from". Then they all go around and ask each other "Where are you from?" "I'm from ____" and cross out the countries they find people from, with the goal of trying to find people from as many countries as possible.

I came here to put together my first lesson for 6th grade loosely based on their textbook about "Where are you from?". I thought my class was cancelled for 6th grade but I was wrong, and at the last minute, had to put together a new lesson.

I went through the whole game using the language and having them repeat it, having students in the class demonstrate using the language back and forth. I think they very much enjoyed it, except that they all questioned me about the female astronaut. They were astonished that she was marked as being from China. They all thought that she was Korean. Maybe this was my error.

I would say the lesson worked quite well. Thank you! You saved me!

It was harder than I thought to find people from so many different countries, especially people I thought the students had a chance of recognizing. The female astronaut is Liu Yang from China, all the people behind her are waving Chinese flags. I had to do some Googling to find a famous Chinese female, though... I didn't even know who she was.

Also, here is a really simple board game for practicing key words and phrases (ordinals/floor/class/where are you from). Also another really simple Powerpoint listing the ordinal numbers. We had our students write the number, the spelling, the ordinal, and the abbreviation in their notebooks from 1-10. For example: 1, one, first, 1st

Still using this book until this year, I think. I lost all my materials when I lost my USB.. :(  So I had to come up with some new materials. Lucky it isn't so hard, I guess. But I got this activity from another thread. ( I don't remember where I saw it..maybe another 5th grade textbook thread.)

Anyway, kudos for the person who came up with this activity. Just re-posting it here, so that people know of this activity. It went really well for my 5th graders.

Attached is a worksheet with a map, country names and a box next to it. Have the students choose one of the countries listed on the map to be "from" and write it in the blank. (No, Korea is not listed. Only choose the ones that are listed. You can change this to your liking.) Next, have Ss go around and ask each other where they are from. Ss must answer according to what they wrote on their paper. If the country is different from their own, then put a check mark next to that country.

The goal is to be the first to get all countries checked. When doing this activity, me and the COT went around looking at what countries the Ss wrote first. Make sure at least one student represents one country. If not, you, the teachers, may have to join in on it.

Here is another activity for Period 3 - Talk & Act. Planning to do fill in the blanks for the dialogue and then a Pass the Wig game.

Pretty self-explanatory.

I significantly modified a trivia quiz that my predecessor left on my computer (so not sure who made the original, sorry). Some of it is geography-related, and some of it is just for fun.
