How are seasons different?
Grade 2, A1 level


In this lesson students(Ss) will learn about seasons, weather and seasonal activities. The lesson starts with the revision of last lesson. There are some lexis which need to be taught before Ss watch the Big Question video. Hence, T shows the visuals on the Discover Poster. Ss look at the pictures and try to guess the places, seasons and what children do in the pictures. Teacher helps them tell the weather conditions.Then T elicits the activities which are related to the seasons. Then the teacher gives them a gist question "how are seasons different?" before Ss watch the Big Question video. After Ss have watched the video, they try to answer the question. Then T asks them what they see in the picture on their books to elicit some seasonal activities and to activate their existing knowledge of the topic. Ss will try to give answer for critical thinking questions in the book. Then the words related to the topic are presented by the T and they practice the words by listening and doing exercises in their books. In the end they are given a task (from their Work Book) to practice the TL they have learned in the lesson.
