Review grammar for giving reasons (because, so, therefore, etc.) and grammar for suggestions (I think..., You need to..., You must...). Put students into groups of 4-5 students. Each group gets a set of job cards and item cards. Each student gets 3-4 item cards.
Students play rock, paper, scissors. The winner picks a job card. The other 3-4 students pitch one of their items to that person.
The student with the job card picks a winner. That student gets a point and picks the next job card. The other students take another card so they always have 3 cards in their hand. Game continues until there are no more cards or the students are sick of the activity.
S1 picks a job card. He is a "teacher".
S2 puts down a "homework" item card.
S2: "I think you need homework because you give students homework."
S3 puts down a "1000 yen" item card.
S3: "I think you need 1000 yen because you are hungry. You can buy a good lunch."
S4 puts down a "gorilla" item card.
S4: "I think you need a gorilla because gorillas are cute."
S1: "Hmmm... I like money so I pick 1000 yen."
