But you do ride kangaroos to school, right?

I was wondering: does anyone use "We say ____ in ____"?  Not sure it's a regional thing, but in the NE US the more common thing would be "You say ____ in ____", to match the question's ("How do you say ___ in ____?") use of the second person as the indefinite pronoun (i.e. the same as "one").  I've never in my life heard anyone use we, and I imagine it's just an artifact from the Korean language where everything is we (our language, our school, our spouse, etc.).

Nope, on the US West Coast we definitely say "We say" (like I...just did, haha).  It would sound a bit weird if I said "On the west coast you say ___" instead of "We say ___", especially if it's a direct question about saying something in a particular country or region.
On the other hand, if someone asked "What do you say when you want to order a coffee?" or something about proper situational language, we answer "Okay, to order a latte you say 'I'd like a ___'".
So:
 "We say 'Hella' a lot in California."
 "You say 'to-go' if you want to take your food home."

This is a Mr. Bean bomb game I made. It's VERY simple, so you may want to adapt it for your own needs.

What a weird book!

teachers - when teaching this chapter - please teach the truth to the kids - and tell them the book is wrong.

"There is no snow in my country. We donít have winter. "

(1)  Australia does have winter - it has four seasons.  Winter is June, July & August in Australia.

(2)  There is snow in Australia.  Just look at all these pictures of all the ski resorts in Australian -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skiing_in_Australia

It is these false things - that is the reason I refuse to use the YBM book, - I prefer to teach my students the truth.

It was referring to Malaysia, not Australia. Then they said Australia does have winter, but it's summer there now.

I took the awesome Angry Birds game template and used it to review the expressions for this chapter.

You might want to open with this song from youtube. It goes through all of the countries.

I made this game using an idea i heard from another teacher. the game was called "storm the castle"

directions:
1. draw a big castle on the board
2. divide the castle into sections based on the number of students you have
3. students will answer a question
4. if they are right, they will throw a sticky ball at the board. whatever number it hits, dies
5. students can revive by aiming for a revive spot. this is usually the castle gate.
6. you can include yourself, but make sure it is very difficult because they will aim for you ;)

sounds like a lot of fun right? problem was finding that sticky ball. think of that sticky hand we used to play with as kids. couldnt find anything remotely close to it. emart, lotte, daiso, morning glory... nothing.

so I made a game with materials i can easily manipulate. i call it the unlucky lottery.

directions:
1. print out and cut up a number for each student. put the cards in a bag
2. make a ppt, or not, with all the questions you want to ask. i used a bunch of bomb game slides and just pasted them in there to save myself time.
3. you can have students volunteer before the question or after it is revealed
4. when they answer correctly, they choose a number form the bag. that person is out.
5. students can revive by answering a question, and making a skill shot. i have this small trashcan and this paper ball i made just small enough to fit in the trashcan. the bigger the ball, the harder the shot. carnival game style. i then put the can on a chair and moved back far away and let them take a shot. my students wanted 1-3, so i made it 2.
6. if they make the shot, they are back in the game.
7. i rewarded the alive students by letting them leave early.

i only did this one time and it was great. i had about 90% participation or attempted participation. students just loved the lottery idea. having a chance to revive kept everyone in the game. try it. tell me what you think.

i am adding more questions to the ppt i am posting, but what i have lasted about 10-15 minutes.

This is a PPT with many flags of different countries.

You can use it to play a general knowledge quick guessing game with the kids.
You can also use it with the structure: "Where are you from?" .
If you get an Australian flag, students can say: "I'm from Australia."

This is a vocabulary PPT for the unit.

You can elicit the vocabulary the students already know and you can play a simple guessing game with these words. It is also a good idea to have a quick writing quiz with the words so that students not only know what they mean but can also write them without looking too.

I made this prezi about Australia. Just some quick facts and then there is a short quiz at the end. I did this at the start of class before we dove into the textbook. Enjoy!!!

Okay, simple but effective first lesson intro.

-All the key words as asked for by the book (pictures, then words. They like to guess for points.)

-Practice the expression "Where are you from? I'm from..." with flags from a vast range of countries, including a handful of quirky ones they won't know.

-Not a great work of TEFL art but gets the job done for the first lesson!

I made a prezi for the listening section of Lesson 14. It has movies of my friends talking about different countries, using the target expressions, and speaking in different languages. The students have to match what they say with the flags found in the back of the books. I used it as a group game.You might want to skip the first one (which is me... Obviously, a lot of people eat eggs and bacon for breakfast. Just checking to see if the students know where I'm from).

I'm starting classes off with some classic world capitals memorization (since my students apparently can't even place Korea on a map  :shocked:). So here's a series of short PPTs: each one covers one region of the world, providing the flag, name and capital of five different nations, as well as some pictures. Will add some more over the next couple weeks.

A couple simple (non-bomb) games.

1) Modified Hot Potato game for this lesson.  Thanks to the original creator!  (Reading game using sentences from Day 1 and 2.)  Similar to a Korean counting game the students play called 논치게임 (nunchi game).  One student stands and reads a word, then 2nd student reads the 2nd word, etc.  If two students stand together, they get a strike (X).

I changed the rules a little (as explained in the PPT), and got rid of the trigger circles for the X's (since I kept missing them and accidentally advancing to the next slide).  Instead, just click anywhere for the X, and click the arrow box to go to the next slide.

I also added the rule that students must put their head down (for that sentence) if they got a strike, since the same kids kept deliberately sabotaging the game for everyone.

2) Heads Up 7 Up instructions PPT.  If you didn't play this game in elementary school, you can read all about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Up_%28game%29.

Just a basic PPT I downloaded last year (I think) to explain the game more clearly to the students.  I cleaned it up a little and modified it to fit this lesson. You can use the seven flag cards in the back of this book (p. 229).

Also, thanks to whichever thread I was reading that suggested using this game for their lesson about countries!  I haven't tried it yet, but I hope it works and the students actually stay quiet.

EDIT : After playing it with a few classes, I slightly modified the Heads Up 7 Up PPT (v2).  Mainly to make the question and answer part more exactly match the target language (last slide).  It can take over 20 minutes to play this game, especially since the first time or two, most students will continue to try to look around instead of keeping their heads down.  (I told the 7 students to make sure and not pick anyone whose eyes were open!)
