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.
