In this lesson, the students will discover about underwater animals. First, they will play a game which will enable them to see the animals and their names under them. This will lead them to discover the animals and their written forms without the interruption of the teacher and when the activity finishes the teacher introduces the characters of the lesson; crab, dolphin, clownfish, turtle and seahorse. After this introduction, the T asks the ss which character has the features she mentions in her questions and the ss answer them. In the final stage, the T gives the students an ocean image where they can fill it with their favourite sea animals. They have to stand up as a group and tell why they have chosen those animals.
