Game Features

  • For an added challenge, includes 5 levels where the teacher will adjust their talking speed depending on the level

  • Play as a listening or a listening/reading game - templates for both versions included in the PowerPoint

How to Play

  • Students can see different pictures on the safe, each with numbers under them. 

  • The teacher will read a set of words or sentences. 

  • Students will try to match what the teacher says to the pictures on the screen and write down the numbers under them. 

  • The numbers they write will make a code to unlock the safe.

  • Once students have finished writing, the teacher will click/press the spacebar to reveal the code and check the students' answers.

Variations

  • The instructions above are for the listening version of this game. If you want to add a reading component, use words instead of pictures in the boxes. A template for this version is also included as hidden slides at the end of the PowerPoint.

Runtime

(based on experiences from me and other teachers)

  • Time: 15-20min; Students: 15; Skill Focus: Listening; Finished: Yes (used varying talking speeds, added gifs after each round, and added a money values (right answers got +1,000 won up to 100,000won depending on the level) - this added ~5min to the game)
