Procedure (19-30 minutes)
Give register and ask students how they are, encourage short replies. Check homework from yesterday in order to refresh related vocabulary. Elicit answers to put on board.
Tell students we are going to do a quiz, rearrange class into two large groups. Give out tokens for each student, and say they can each answer one question for their team. Explain that I am going to ask questions from the quiz, and give three options for each answer. Children have to play their token and say which items are correct. Sometimes there is more than one answer. 1 point correct answer 2 points two correct answers Lose a point for shouting! Do quiz, award points on board. Explain vocabulary as we go along and keep track of points on the board.
Individually students read the quiz and try to recall the correct answers. Teacher circles and helps with difficult vocabulary, notes on the board for further practice. Students exchange papers and mark quiz from answers on the board.
Give instruction that students are to circle a fact they think is interesting or surprising. Give example and give students one minute to do this. Ask them to compare with a partner and give further information (if possible). Feedback one or two examples.
