It's "America Day"! What simple activities and games would you suggest for 40 English language learners in China, ages 8-12?

My program has been invited to run an "America Day" with 3rd-6th graders, ages 8-12, learning English at a summer camp in China. I have 20 American high schoolers who will volunteer to play games and do activities with these children. We will be playing games with the kids for about an hour and a half. We are not going to have a lot of supplies at our disposal - just PowerPoint capability.
What games would you suggest that we play with the Chinese students? I've been told their English is very basic/non-existent. Any suggestions and/or websites welcome! I've been thinking of having my students introduce some songs about various American holidays, and play some usual American children's games such as duck duck goose, and Simon Says.
Thank you in advance!
