This lesson is based on photographs taken in a local supermarket during a recent campaign which challenged consumers to shop without buying anything in plastic packaging during a week. The photos were shared on social media with the hashtag accompanying the campaign to be used as a springboard for discussion and project work with students. As well as offering a great context for reviewing the language of food, it also offers a chance to expand on this topic and look at the language used to talk about issues surrounding plastic waste.
- To discuss issues surrounding plastic packaging in supermarkets
- To study and practise the language of food items and packaging
- To undertake an out-of-class project involving taking and captioning photographs
