TeachingEnglish has lots of different lesson plans for teachers who are teaching English around the world to children aged 5-12. To help you find suitable lesson plans, we have three levels on our site. These lesson plans for level 2 are most suitable for children who can understand and use words and sentences in common topics and situations, and can follow more complex stories and texts. Teachers can use the levels as a guide. For example, if they start to find level 2 lessons too easy, you can try more level 3 lessons. However, all children learn differently, so try lessons from different levels at any time, especially if it is a topic they enjoy.
