Order up!  You are in a restaurant and the chef wants to cook. Press order to hear (and see) the first order in Chinese.  Look at the Chef’s counter and select the correct item of food.  If you get it correct, it will fall onto the waiter’s tray!

The Pedagogy:

Food is fun vocabulary to learn. Children can at least impress their parents when they eat at a Chinese restaurant.
 The food exploding if the child’s matching of food to the sound adds to the fun. As a basic game it is important to make it enjoyable. 
 
Extended play ideas:
 
Using pictures of Chinese food, help the children learn the ingredients that go into the dishes. Using a map of China show the different regions of the country and where and how food differs between regions.
