In this lesson, learners will be introduced to vocabulary to describe environmental issues. They will watch a story about different environmental issues and sing a song about ways of helping the environment. They will practise using 'should' and 'shouldn't' to talk about helping the environment, and think about what they do or can do, by playing a game and conducting a class survey. Finally, they will talk about recycling and either make a poster or write a poem, and do a recycling craft activity.
To develop and practise (depending on stages chosen):
- vocabulary: words connected to the environment
- structure: 'should' and 'shouldn't'
- curricular work: environmental importance, issues and good practice
- integrated skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing
