I made this PPT to teach a lesson on directions in my class. It starts out with really basic vocab (up, down, left, right) then gets a little more difficult.
There are a few slides in which I ask the students to give me the control-pad directions for performing special moves in various video games. This was my initial concept, but it sort of fell flat due to lack of material. It is actually hard to find screen shots from classic video games, let alone animations (as was my initial intent). Regardless, the students LOVED this. It hovered around the basics, but the attention they gave me afterwards was well worth it.
The last slide is a map of some part of England (I think). At that point I ask the students how to get to various places.
The lesson also included an information gap activity with directions to the COEX Mall and a local IBK branch, but that is on my computer at school which can't access this website without freezing (all of a sudden).
A lot of the lesson is kind of silly, but with my morning class full of soccer players I need it to get through the lesson.
In the last 10 minutes of class, I ask them to draw me a map of the school and give me directions to the cafeteria. Some of them get pretty inventive. "Jump through window. Break down wall. Fly across soccer field" etc.
P.S. depending on the version of PowerPoint you use the presentation may come out a little wonky.
