To provide fluency speaking practice in a discusion in the context of Healthy Food and its benefits.
Procedure (26-35 minutes)
Ts will do a group song with the whole classroom to set up the context of food.
Ts will act as healthy and unhealthy people to lead the Ss to the lesson's topic which is Healthy and Unhealthy food, then elicit from them more Healthy and Unhealthy food. Afterward, the Ss play a game on the board where they need to select only the healthy food to collect more points.
T will show the Ss an unhealthy person and his food cycle to highlight the concept of eating healthy and what benefit can our body get.
Ss will play a matching game to test their knowledge of the benefit the body gets from healthy food (Strong Muscles - Strong Bones - Energy). Then the Ts will do a WC feedback to check the Ss answers and choices.
Ss will be provided with a pyramid and different categories of food and will get the opportunity to construct their own food pyramid based on their understanding. Ss will do group checking by walking in the classroom and checking the other groups' answers then go back to their seats. T then will take one example and do a WC feedback in order to more practice to the Ss to speak and reflect.
Ts will regroup the Ss to vary the interactions between Ss and their opinions. Ts will show the Ss an example of a daily meal schedule and elicit from them what the T chose as meals and whether they are healthy or not. Then Ss will get to make their own planing of the meals as a practice of their understanding of healthy food. Ss will do group checking once again to explore the others' choices. Ts then take one example and do a WC feedback about it.
