Procedure (35-39 minutes)
1. Write on WB “Free time.” 2. Say “you are at school right now. This is class. Is this free time? I am teaching. Is this my free time? No. work time ≠ free time. School time ≠ free time. Do you play tennis in your free time? Do you watch TV? Do you go out with friends? 3. Show pictures and explain, “These people all have free time. They do different things in their free time. Look at the pictures and match to the words.” 4. Have Sts check answers with a partner. 5. Review by calling on individual Sts.
1. Write two columns on WB: who, what, when, where and today, Istanbul, my friend, my mobile phone 2. Tell Sts to match the wh- words with their pairs.
1. Form Sts into groups of 3 and 4. 2. Give them prepared questions. The words of each question are printed individually on flashcards and shuffled. All the words on printed in one color of ink except for the auxiliary “do”, which is printed in a different color. 3. Demonstrate with one stack what to do: the Sts have to sort the words of each stack into the right word order to form the question correctly. Once finished, they write the sentence on WB and write the auxiliary “do” in a different color. 4. Have Sts work in groups. 5. Check accuracy in WC response.

1. Erase questions from WB. 2. Write one answer to an erased question and demonstrate, “here is the answer. What is the question?“ 3. Pin other answers on the WB, hand out HO and tell students to fold it to hide the survey part. Tell them to write the question in the first space. 4. They work in pairs to generate the other questions.
1. Tell Sts to unfold page. 2. Demonstrate with St the asking of questions and writing in the answers. 3. Tell Sts to stand up, mingle and talk to three other students, filling in the answers.
1. As Sts finish with their third partner, I will take their survey and tell them to go talk to someone without the questions in front of them. 2. To finish the class, I will tell Sts to sit down and then quickly pose some closing questions based on the answers to the surveys, questions that prep them for the following lesson, i.e., “Ali Fuot, does Fatma like Mexican food? Who else likes Mexican food?” etc.
