Игра «Счастливый случай»



Данное мероприятие можно провести как итоговый урок или как внеклассное мероприятие на страноведческую тему. Группу можно разделить на две команды, но допускается вариант игры, когда каждый играет за себя.

Урок состоит из четырех частей.

^ Первую часть можно озаглавить «Внимание на экран». В быстром темпе показываются слайды, которые ребята видели в течение года, с портретами писателей, с иллюстрациями к их произведениям, с портретами исторических деятелей. Играющие должны сказать, кто (что) изображен (изображено) на экране.

На обдумывание даётся 15 секунд. Если за это время учащийся не ответил, учитель обращается к другим ученикам, и за правильный ответ им добавляются дополнительные баллы. За каждый правильный ответ 20 баллов. Когда играющий набирает 100 баллов, он получает оценку «5».

^ Вторая часть игры — «Темная лошадка». Здесь используются магнитофонные записи - отрывки из стихотворений и песен (1— 2 строчки), которые школьники слушали раньше на уроках. Учащиеся должны назвать либо автора, либо произведение.

^ Третья часть«Ты — мне, я — тебе» (домашнее задание). Каждый ученик готовит дома вопрос по литературе или страноведению. Оценивается самый интересный вопрос.

^ Четвертая часть — игра «Счастливый случай»

Для игры нужны: начерченное на листе картона поле с написанными в клетках цифрами (см. рис., на нем представлен круг в уменьшенном в несколько раз виде),





маленький кубик из любой настольной игры и фишки. Учащиеся по очереди бросают кубик и помещают свою фишку на то число на поле, на которое упал кубик. Клетки поля раскрашены в разные цвета. Числа 1, 5, 9, 13, 21, 25, 29, 32, 33, 37, 42, 46 написаны на желтом поле; числа 2, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22, 24, 26, 30, 35, 39, 45 — на сиреневом поле; числа 3,7, 11, 15, 17, 19,27,31,36,40,44, 48 — на зеленом поле; числа 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 23, 28, 34, 38, 41, 43, 47 -на синем поле.

Если фишка поставлена на число, расположенное на желтом поле, ученик отвечает на вопрос по истории; если фишка находится на сиреневом, зеленом или синем поле — то играющему предлагается соответственно вопрос по литературе; по образованию, культуре, науке; вопрос, касающийся жизни и деятельности известных людей стран изучаемого языка.

Если кубик попадает на число, находящееся в треугольнике, то это и есть «счастливый случай». Учащемуся дается возможность ответить на 3 вопроса и заработать больше баллов. Если же он ошибся, то учитываются только правильные ответы.

Заранее должны быть приготовлены карточки с вопросами. Их гораздо больше, чем чисел в круге; ведь приходится иметь в виду те случаи, когда кубик попадает на число в треугольнике, и играющий получает две дополнительные карточки. Кроме того, в процессе игры кубик может попасть на одно и то же число по несколько раз, следовательно, понадобятся дополнительные варианты вопросов. Ниже приводятся вопросы, которые использовались в данной игре.
