T puts students in groups of three.T tells the students that they want to live in one flat together so they will look at three different flats.Students are told that each will get one different flat which their friends can't see. T models the questionare with one of the strong students. An ICQ is: can your friend see your flat? No. T monitors and takes notes of any errors during the task. Having finished, T asks each group to choose the flat they want to live in and why. WCFB: T error corrects and asks each group to share their flat.
T tells the students that they will move to a new flat but it has no furniture (empty) but they will have 5o,ooo TL to buy furniture and that they will work with thwir groups to draw furniture and name the rooms in their blueprint. Having finished, students are asked to stick their blueprint somewhere on the wall and look at the different blueprints to choose one from.
