This is a page for ice-breaker/warm up questions targeting Junior High school in Japan. It can also be used for Senior high. These questions can be used with many games, such as Criss Cross.

PointingEdit

Use objects in the class room and point to them saying variants of "What's this?", "What is that?". Try using plurals, for example, point to your ears and say "What are these?".

Flash Cards Slow ReleaseEdit

Use a flash card, but only show a little bit at a time. Just use ordinary flash cards, but cover them with the back of another flash card and slowly reveal it. Ask the students "Does anyone know what this is?". Reveal as the students get stuck.

Custom CardsEdit

Preparing custom flash cards for this task simply involves getting an existing flash card and creating duplicates of it at an increasingly higher zoom. For example, a flash card of a tennis ball, zoomed in 500% might look like grass, then at %200 it might look like a field etc.
