I'll be posting resources here too! See this nifty Project World Cup. Students work in groups to collect info about the country , their team and history. then present to the class. Get a great schedule for the World Cup HERE.
Here is a nice ppt (attached) of all the countries in the forthcoming world cup. Test your student's knowledge! Also, this presentation is a nice interactive summary of all the rules.
The one I posted above had a couple glitches. I've fixed the glitches and added a couple slides at the beginning showing different soccer stadiums around South Africa. I also changed a couple questions. Question 14 is my personal favorite....
The game has worked really well in my classes this week!
Here is an adaptation of BAAM and white board soccer. What's going to happen next ? Shoot means he's going to score/miss, Foul means he's going to get a red/yellow card. Pass means no question. 3 correct guesses for a goal
Here is a nice BIg Picture presentation of the World Cup from the Boston Globe. Also, the official world cup song/video - Just Like a Waving Flag by K'Naan, a Somalian. See it in video in our videos.... Also, use this handy cloze, foldem lyric sheet.
Thought this graphic might be useful at this time:
And a shout out to that group of kids who might not be enthralled with world cup soccer- try to remember them, teach! In fact, if there was a way for private voting, it might be interesting to see what their numbers are... minority rights ;)
