To play a Risk type quiz game to review English questions uising an interactive japan map
This is a modified version of Erik Chen's Japan Risk map. I modified it so that each prefecture has a question attached to it. The student's form groups and can compete to answer questions and gain control over Japan's prefectures. By pressing the circles next to the names of the prefectures, you can change the color of the prefecture to the controlling team.
If you want to add an extra layer of fun, I used a battle function that allowed students to play a short English mini-game (modeled after the categories room / batsu room at Kobe English Summer School
). Depending on who wins, the prefecture can change hands to a new team.
