In this YouTube-based activity, students watch a scene from an animated film and observe the actions performed by characters. The activity is suitable for low level students (primary school) since the focus here is not on listening.

I first did this activity to supplement a unit in one of the better known Pre-Intermediate coursebooks which had a focus on school, and since then I've used it many times as the culmination of activities aimed at practising the ‘obligation and permission' modals, can, can't, have to, must, don't have to, mustn't.
In the project students can find out more about all the planets, focus on one individual planet (Saturn) in a fun way, listen and/or read a story about a planet (The Cold Planet) and finally produce a creative and enjoyable piece of art work based on what they have learnt.
