Grade 6 level
Practice vocab and use of the past tense
Procedure (34-52 minutes)
Talk a little about what you did yesterday (short story). Play part of the song, maybe the first part. The song's long and kind of strange, sorry.
Go through the vocab quickly (the first one is "tourist"). Elicit, concept check, drill maybe once or twice if they're having a hard time saying it.
Using the next slide, kids talk about (made up) trips they've been on. Model with 1 or 2 strong students, then let the kids have at it.
Same as before, go through the voab quickly, concept check if needed, and drill if they can't say it.
Same as the first time, so by now the kids should be getting the hang of this. demo, then let them loose. Encourage them to be creative and use more than just the words on the slide (new body parts, etc.). That way it becomes a semi-controlled activity - you can't exactly predict what they will say.
Put up the last slide. If you want you can give them some relevant words like "pyramid" and "lion" - written on the board. Pass out the story sheets to groups. The rules: each kid must write no more than one or two words, then pass to the next kid. This way they have to share, and it makes their stories more inventive. Demo with a couple of kids so they see how it's done. Don't do any explaining of the slide. Just put up the slide and let the kids make of it what they will - this is free practice after all!
you can play wjhatever's left of that song
