In this lesson, learners will look at the planets in the solar system and features of planets. They will listen to and sing a song, then watch a story about features of different planets. They will practise describing planets using 'there is/are', and then work together to invent their own planet. Finally learners can play a game to learn or review vocabulary.
To develop and practise:
- vocabulary: words connected with the solar system
- structure: there is/are
- curricular work: the solar system
- integrated skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing
