This lesson plan for teachers of primary students looks at several creative ideas for making an English activity book in the summer holidays.

In this lesson, students will plan and create their own Holiday English Activity Book for the summer holidays. First they will do two reading activities in pairs. The first text will explain why it is more fun to make an activity book than to buy one. The second text gives instructions for making the book. 

The learners 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 and show them to the teacher and the rest of the class.
