Reading (about future)

To provide fluency speaking practice in a pair and group work in the context of future
Procedure (55-82 minutes)
T shows Ss two sets of pictures about robots and humans: - what do you think the time is? past or future? - what do you understand from these pictures? - which one do you think will happen in the future? what changes do you want to see 50 years from now? (tell your partner)
T gives Ss some handouts and pieces of paper and asks them to match the new words with their definitions. Then Ss read their answers and T checks the problems.
T divide Ss into 2 groups and gives each S a picture and some pieces of text. Ss need to talk in their groups and read texts and find the one that is related to their own picture.
T asks Ss to do the activity 3 in the book individually. Then they will check their answers in pairs and in the end T gives them the correct answers.
T asks Ss to complete tasks 4 & 5 in pairs. Then Ss read their answers and T checks them.
T asks Ss to make 3 predictions about 50 years later (elicits some ideas from Ss and writes on the board). T asks Ss to talk about and explain their ideas to a partner
