Elementary level level


In this lesson students will practice two reading skills; reading for gist by skimming the text and answering the questions about the text by looking at the plan. And also they will practice looking for specific information and to identify the situation and what the two lines are for. Ss will learn “differences between men and women while doing some activities like shopping, eating outside, or travelling” through looking at a plan following by a prediction task where the Ss are asked few questions to predict what the text is about after giving them a good clarification or a glimpse about the subject. Finally asking them to work on their own at first, and then to compare their answers in pairs.

Start by elicit the word "shopping" from them. write the word on the board, then elicit again things we can buy like clothes, pairs of shoes, perfumes...etc Show Ss the materials (pic.) Ask Ss if they like shopping or not. I'll ask the students some questions and elicit some information from them. For example, who takes much time during shopping? Who pays much money? Finally, tell them to read the text and fill the gabs in it using the picture.
