In this lesson students are introduced to new vocabulary (adjectives), and practice using them to describe photos in the context of a family party. Students will complete a matching HO to determine the meaning of words and identify their antonyms, and then complete another matching ex. involving photos to clarify the meaning of the new lexis. Students will then practice speaking using these adjectives to describe two photos. Lastly, students will practice the receptive skills of listening and reading in the same context, and be introduced to the past simple tense of the verb be.
