Flags and countries
Pre -Intermediate, Grade 5, B1 level
To learn flags of some countries and find them on the map, ability to describe flags.
Procedure (30-42 minutes)
Ss get a picture of 12 flags and try to find out which countries they belong to. A blind map might help them. Firstly SS work individually, secondly in pairs, then in groups of 4, 6 etc. till they compare their assumptions/results in 2 large groups.
Ss work in pairs. They take turns reading a description (a-l) and labelling the flag (1-12). They find the countries on the map.
In pairs, SS design and draw a flag for their class. Each pair shows and describes its flag to the class. SS take a vote to find out the most popular design.
T elicits the names of the countries represented by the flags, writes them on the board and models the pronunciation.
