To provide review and practice of prepsitions (in, on, under) in the context of zoo.
To provide review and practice of animals in the context of zoo.
Procedure (37-64 minutes)
The T asks students to stand up in a circle. The T acts like a penguin, bear, monkey, etc. and the Ss imitate him.
The T uses flashcards to give the meaning, then writes the words on the board to show the form and repeatedly models&drills to enhance the pronunciation.
The T hangs the flashcards around the classroom and asks the Ss to go near and show which one is tiger, monkey, etc. After two trials, the T asks one of the Ss to do the same. The activity continues until every S had a chance to say one.
The T shows the toy, puts it on a chair and says "The squirrel is on the chair." The T also draws on the board, an animal on a table, so that the Ss can see and remember later.
The T delivers a handout taken from the Ss' book and shows the related task. The T plays the audio and asks the Ss if they can listen and say, then practice.
The T divides the Ss into 2 groups and asks the Ss to complete the gap-fill exercise individually. Then, after the Ss finish, the T asks them to check your answers with the group members and prepare a final paper. When the final papers are complete, groups change the papers and check.
The T delivers the 2nd page of the Ss' book. Then writes on the board: "Where is the monkey?" The T writes the answer "It's on the rock." Instead of focusing on the subject's name/kind, the T emphasizes the "it."
The T divides the Ss into pairs, delivers small pieces of pictures of animals, standing in, or under something and asks the learners to use "Where is the monkey? It's under the tree." One S asks and his/her pair answers.
