The Amazing Race is a PowerPoint Project is a fun and innovative activity that my students completed. If you have watched the show, it mirrors it a bit. My ESL students had to map out a route in which to travel, research six countries from the six continents (we omitted Antarctica--but you can include that) and find information on each country, and include a cultural activity in which they had to make it into a competition.
My students had fun with this, they had an awareness about the different cultures around the world, and fun in creating competitions as well. This is really helpful for teaching Geography, language, research skills, etc. I provided an outline that I gave them to base themselves on, and my own teacher example of the project, which differs from the outline so they won't do what I did, but create their own.
