Zoltar the Fortune Teller

This is a simple and mildly amusing way to introduce 'which' questions for a first grade class. It can be edited for a second grade classes studying 'Which do you like better'

Set up the TV and computer or tablet then at the beginning of the activity tell them along with the JTE that we'll be practicing 'Which' questions today.

One the first two slides there are examples of these questions.

Then tell them we'll do this with a fortunte telling activity. The next slide has examples of fortune telling. After showing them ask the students what fortune telling means in Japanese. They should get it.

Next tell them todays fortune telling uses magic coins, the next screen shows the coins and the one after that shows the value of the coins. 3 gold are great and so on.

Next tell them that today's fortune teller is Zoltar and click on the screen to introduce zoltar. At this point hand out the worksheets.

Click and zoltar will laugh and ask his first question. The students fill in the blanks on their worksheet and write in their answers. They can then ask two nearby students the same question and record their answers. After that click again and zoltar will reveal either a gold or silver coin depending on the student's answer. Continue through the next two questions repeating the process.

Once done click and get to the screen that says results. Tell them they will learn their future home. If the students got three gold coins ask them to raise their hands. Click again to show them the picture. Repeat for the remaining results.

After completing this activity I usually do some sort of class survey activity where they interview each other about various topics. I've tacked on the class survey I usually use. I do it in short rounds with the students asking five people, writing their conclusion and coming to a teacher. The teacher usually asks them a question and then stamps their sheet. Set a time limit then move onto the next round. In most lessons I do about 3 or 4 rounds.
