In this lesson, students will practice reading for gist and details in the context of surviving. The lesson will start with preparing students for the context by projecting a picture and asking few questions. In the next stage, students will read dangerous positions and write what they would do in that case. Then, students will read the proper actions for those situations and check if their answers were correct. Next, students will answer true or false question then they will talk about their opinions on the best survivor. In the last task, students will connect words from the box with the previous situations. Finally, students will get feedback about good sentences and mistakes.
