I will have ready 12 pictures representing the star signs on the wall. I will ask them about the pictures and elicit as much as possible from the students. Then, I will give them the names of the star signs and ask them to match with the pictures after discussing in their groups. When they are done, they will practise pronouncition as well.
I will ask them to discuss in pairs about astrology. I will asloprovide them with question like "Do they believe in astrology?", "What is their astrological sign?", "How often do they read their horoscope?".
First, I will show the possible title alternatives. I'll make sure that they fully understand the meaning behind the titles, may be do some vocabulary practice. Then I ask them to read the text quickly and discuss on the possible title with their partners. Then I will get FB.

I will share with them the handout and will remind them the instruction of this activity then they will move around and talk as many people as they can. Then they will return to their seats and I will get some WC FB.
