Procedure (45 minutes)
T shows a picture (plane) to the Ss and asks them "What can you see?" T tells the students that in September he is going to_______ (travel). In pairs, Ss think where is the T going?. T elicits the answers and discusses with the students the places (where to go and what to see)
T draws a map of Turkey. T locates two places on the map (Gaziantep and Istanbul). T draws a line from Istanbul to Gaziantep telling the Ss that this is his "destination". T elicits the verb "travel". In Gaziantep, T will have a "tour" to have a look around the city (castle, museum etc). T tells the Ss that after a week he will have a journey from Gzi to bodrum. it is a long distance, so we call it "journey".In the next month T will go from Gzi to Nizip (T locates the town on the map), a short distance so we call it a trip.
In pairs,T gives the Ss pieces of papers to match the words with the definitions. Then, T elicits the answers and hands the Ss a handout (see the materials) for the answers.
T asks Ss to fold the paper and not to look at the answers. Then, T asks Ss to read the TV programme and tell the T "what is it about?"
In groups, T tells the Ss that they are going to read a bout a TV program and then they are going to answer the questions. T gives the Ss the HOs.
In groups, Ss will share their answers. Then, T elicits the answers on the WB.
T shows 3 pictures of the great wall of China, the pyramid of Egypt and the South Island, New Zealand. In groups, Ss will choose one place to go and why. Then, they will mingle and tell each other their answers. T elicits the answers.
In groups,T gives the Ss a chart asking them to write top five/three holiday destinations in Turkey with one reason for each.
T nominates one S to stay in the same group and asks the others to move to another group to have a look at the places and discuss the reasons. when they finish, they move to another group and so on.
T highlights some mistakes and errors and correct them
