YLE-TP4: Nature
Elementary level


In this lesson, the Ss learn vocabulary about nature through guided listening. This is followed by practicing the phrase "I can see ..." and "What can you see?" Finally, there is a controlled practice through sentence reformulation and free practice via a final memory game.


Main Aims

  • To provide practice of nature in the context of the park.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of the park.


Lead-in (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through pre-teach vocabulary.

-The T uses flashcards to show vocabulary of the day. After several times of drilling, the T delivers scrap papers to the Ss and asks them raise which one is a rock, flower, hill, etc. -The flashcards are in the classroom, in different places. The T points at them and shows where they are. The T then says one of them and the Ss try to go near the picture that has just been said.

Do The Puzzle (5-8 minutes) • To provide learners with more meaningful & cheerful practice

- The T takes the flashcards and hangs them on the board. Then, writes their meaning. The T delivers the handouts that include the puzzle and the Ss are asked if they can complete it.

Extension (3-4 minutes) • To prepare learners for more meaningful practice of the TL.

The T shows the question form: "What can you see?" and drills it with the Ss. The T tries to implement this sentence by body language, mimics and gestures. And for the response part, the T models the language by drawing a flower on the board and saying "I can see a flower." This is repeated when it comes to draw 2 -or more- flowers and say "I can see flowers."

Further Practice (4-5 minutes) • To provide the Ss with controlled practice of the TL.

- The T delivers the last HOs to provide a better understanding of the TL. In this HO, the Ss are going to work in groups of 4 and circle the correct answer. Each group says one answer and the 2nd section begins. - In the 2nd part of the HO, the groups now try writing answers and a question according to the picture. After checking the answers by comparing to one another, the group which has the highest number of correct answers win.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide the Ss with semi-controlled practice of the TL.

- The T writes on the board: "I can see" and then checks the meaning of this phrase. So as to be sure, the T uses gestures/mimics to clarify the meaning. Then, the T shows a picture of a flower and says "I can see a flower." The Ss repeat & drill. The T shows a picture of two or more flowers and says "I can see flowers." The Ss repeat & drill again. The T checks the meaning by CCQs like "Is there one flower? How many flowers are there? Do we say 'flower' or 'flowers'?"

Matching Activity (5-8 minutes) • To provide the Ss with controlled practice of the TL.

- The T delivers a HO that contains matching exercise about the vocabulary. Working in different pairs, the Ss try to draw lines between the related pictures. To check the correct answers, the T shows the picture on the board from the OP.
