CELTYL Lesson 3
Elem. Ages 10-13 level
To make students describe and produce sentences about the weather.
To provide review, clarification and practice of weather and seasons in the context of Turkey
Procedure (39-45 minutes)
I will draw a set of stairs and a stick figure of a man at the top. At the bottom there will be water and a shark. I will model it like hangman and put letters and everytime a word is wrong the man will go a step lower.
I will put each season flash card on the board and put the students in pairs. I will give each pair two cards with weather words on them. The pairs will then decide what season to put the cards under. Then I will use the first card (for example summer and sunny) and model a sentence, In summer the weather is sunny. Then in their pairs the students will try to produce the rest of the sentences. Model: In ______ the weather is ______
I will show flash cards with the vocabulary and I will have students name the weather by elicitation. I will make sure to drill and repeat so they learn them perfectly. I then do the same with the four seasons.
I will provide a map of Turkey that has 10 cities on it. I will then read a description of Turkey and they will need to listen and write the weather for the cities. The first one will be done as an example. I will then give them an answer key and they can check in pairs.
I will divide the students in pairs and give one member a map of Turkey that has 10 cities on it, 5 with the weather filled in. Then the other member will have a map with the other 5 filled in. Without showing each other, they will ask questions and try to fill in the map. Model: What's the weather like in _______?
