In this lesson learners will plan and create their own activity book for the summer holidays. First they will do two reading activities to prepare them. They will then look at some ideas for pages they can include in their own books. They will work in small groups, sharing their ideas and planning their books, deciding how many pages to have and which activities to include. Finally they will create their books.


  • To encourage learners to use English in a creative way
