Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Activity Kit
We have produced a Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games activity kit which consists of Paralympics PPT quiz, Kahoot! and activities on watching anime using an NHK anime of Paralympic sports, which can easily be incorporated in face to face lessons or online lessons.
PARALYMPICS PPT QUIZ
Quizzes are great tools to engage students and encourage students to practice reading / revising Japanese in an interesting way while stimulating their interest in finding out about the Paralympics and the sports.
The powerpoint quiz includes multiple choice questions in which students can select an answer and we have used Hyperlinks to provide instant feedback on if their answer is correct or not. Students can complete the quiz individually offline at their own pace. In this way, the quiz can not only be used during lessons, but also used as a pre-task or as a homework.
Kahoot is widely used in Australian schools and very popular with students!
We have created a ‘Japanese Trivia Quiz’ and a ‘Which Sports Event is it? Quiz’ with Kahoot. Please try them out!

ACTIVITIES ON WATCHING ANIME
NHK World has uploaded a series of short Japanese animations, Ani×Para World, focusing on the Paralympic sports to promote the appeal of the Paralympic Games. Each episode is ５ minutes in length. We have created questions which will help keep students actively engaged while watching the videos.
We have selected 5 videos below which explain the rules of the competition, and show skills and tactics on how to win the game.
Episode 1: ブラインドサッカー (Football 5-a-side)
Episode 3: 車いすテニス (Wheelchair Tennis)
Episode 6: じゅうどう (Vision Impaired Judo)
