First Reading (3-5 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist reading tasks

Ss will be given short reading about the first aid kit. T will ask ss to have a first reading in order to get the gist, then the T will ask what is the text gist to check whether they got its main idea or not.

Second Reading (5-8 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed.

T will ask the ss to read the text for another time and answer the questions "Why do we need a first aid kit?", and "What a first aid kit should contain?" to check if they absorbed the vocabulary given to them before. The T will ask the ss to ask each other the question in order to check if they understand what is in the text as well as the vocabulary they are learning.

Post-Reading activity (9-11 minutes) • To provide ss with an opportunity to learn some of the first aid techniques

T will give the ss a first aid quiz and that they should choose one of the options given to each situation in the handout and then discuss it with a partner.
