This material is designed for students to learn spatial prepositions in Japanese. Targeted prepositions include: Ushiro (behind), Aida (between), Naka (in), Mae (in front of), Soba (next to), Ue (on), Shita (under).
1. Matching Activity:
A student is expected to listen to a sentence and find a picture that matches the sentence.
2. Cloze Activity:
A student is expected to complete a sentence using an appropriate preposition to describe a picture.
3. Barrier Game: Two students work in pairs on this activity. Place a barrier between the two students so that they cannot see
each others pictures. Each student has a set of the materials.
The students take turns giving the other student specific directions
in order to match their pictures (e.g., “Put your ghost on
the moon.”, “Put your cat under the pumpkin.”). The goal of this game is to have students give and follow directions
including spatial prepositions.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope your students enjoy this material.
