So, it seems not a lot of people have gotten to this chapter yet.  We just started this chapter today, so unfortunately I don't have many materials to offer, but I figured I might as well give you some of the ideas.  So, we had the student watch a youtube clip about the Three R's: reduce, reuse, recycle.  Then we had the students put things you can do under each word. Reduce would be things like turn off lights, turn off the water. Reuse= donate clothes. Recycle: paper, plastic etc.  You get the point.  It helps them learn the english words to what I'm sure they already know about saving the planet.  This required no PPT, but you could make one if you wanted. I may in the future. If I do then I will post it here. 

Then, another idea is to show the students some clips from Captain Planet. They have episode 1 on youtube, maybe more. The problem is the quality is sooo poor that I am thinking of buying the DVDs so it can be a little better. I love CP so it doesn't matter to me.

Hope this helps a little.

Just a collection of worksheets I found online. They're not really designed for ESL students but they can probably adapted for classroom use.

Wanted to use a video and I was really disappointed. I don't think just repeating the 3R's over and over again for 40 mins is helpful. So here's a better video made by kids giving information for kids with Korean subtitles (and subtitles in about 10 other languages)

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7u2iz_top-10-ways-children-can-help-halt_news

My plan:
1. Have the kids list 10 things they SHOULD do RIGHT NOW to help the environment. (Focusing on target language)
2. Show the video
3. Have the students review what they learned. Versus what they wrote down.
4. Win

Here's a lot of attachments I made for open class. There a New Words and Expressions PPT. A chase the word, which my students liked a lot. A multiple choice, which was a hit and miss but I suggests having the students talk about the picture before you show the options. There is a Telephone Game, which we ended up exnaying because my students are too competitive. With the Telephone Game there's CL Phonics. I practiced what CL sounds like with my students then I read the story. When they heard a word with the CL sound then they raise their arms. First I read slow then I read fast. My students liked that one especially when someone rose their hands at the wrong word. Of course you can change to suit your class level.

I hope this helps.

Thank you so much for that detailed lesson plan! I hope your open class feedback was great!

I used this handout because I think the book talks about "can" and "can't" somewhere.

Next week, I will concentrate more on "should".

We are going to use this video, Le Royaume: http://vimeo.com/13810139

Possible CCQ's:

What is wrong with the beaver?
What does the king want?
Who helps him?
What happens to the forest?
Why does the castle fall down?
Describe the king's personality? What does he symbolize?
Is the king bad? Why is the king bad?
What should the king do instead? Why?
Do you think the king has done this before? What do you see in his crown?

Game worked great with my students.

I throw paper balls at students aftering having them repeat key sentences.  Student is prompted to ask me "Why?" to which I answer with the correct expression.

E.g. "You should wash your hands."  "Why?"  "Because you played outside."

Students then get to throw the paper back at me if they say an expression or choose the right expression.  When hit I hammed it up by crying and asking them "Why?"  Students respond with "Because."

Be prepared for head shots.

Fun dialog where James is "James Potter"--Harry's dad.  His family treats him pretty badly and ends up killing him and planting his body.  Morbid but the kids liked it.

Games: Where's James' body? - student say an expression under a tree planted in the yard.  The winner finds James' hair sticking out, We Should/You Should - students decide if they want the next slide or let the teacher have it.

My students loved the bomb game!

We also watched and discussed these animations - the English at the end was beyond most of their levels, but they were able to get the main idea and relate it to the key expressions we covered.

I really like the chase the vocab game but I am a little confused on how to add new slides. Has anybody else added new slides? Any help would be great.

it's really hard to add new slides especially if you just copy & paste from what's originally there.  if you need to,you could find the template and work off that otherwise you'd have to copy & paste while keeping the formatting and then you'd have to go through the trouble of changing all the pictures which in order to do so you'd have to send the background to the very back in order to replace the pictures that are already there. i changed it but it took me forever but if someone knows a faster way please share

Exactly If I could find the template it would be great. I saw the instructions on the first slide but it just didn't make sense.

I think the user named Rufus made, does anybody know who that is?

My coteacher has begun a campaign heavily focused on writing activities, so here are the worksheets I've created for Story A and Story B. 

The numbered lines within the stories are for the students to translate the sentence in Korean.  You can find the text in both languages on the CD if your coteacher is absent from class.

I've made them half sheets, so the students can glue them into their textbooks or English notebooks after they've been completed.  My coteacher often assigns homework to write each incorrect answer x amount of times in their notebook.

 G6 L10 P2 - Because We Should Save the Earth - Pics for the game.

This is a practice PPT I put together with the pictures from the book.


My students find it difficult to remember the sentences by heart, so:
1) Listen and repeat each sentence 2 times.
2) It the students turn to do it alone.  See if they can remember.
3) Do the opposite 'because' half of the dialog.  and the students will guess the  'You should' other half.
4) Go through each 'You should, why, becuase match' but have the students guess the answer after why

Hi!  I had a Save the Earth poster contest for the last two classes of this lesson

For the first session I used the attached worksheet as a brainstorming activity.  I explained that we would be making posters and showed them examples on the attached ppt.  Then I had the students tell me what "words" they could use on their posters and then what "sentences" they could use.  I had them write it all down and glue the paper in their books.

The next class I divided the class into 9 groups of 3 and gave them a poster paper and scratch paper.  I asked each group to decide what theme they would use on their posters: make a sketch and write down in English what you put on the poster.  Then I checked to make sure grammar was correct and let them start on their poster.  I made the posters due in the next week so that they could work on them in their homerooms.

The kids turned in really great and creative posters and now we have them up in our classroom :-)

This is a simple game that my students loved.  I created it on the fly so I think it would be better if you do the following.  I just used a piece of paper and two waste baskets.

1.  Bring in a bottle, can, and crumbled piece of paper.

2.  Have two trash cans, calling one " trash can" and the other "recycle."  Having one big and the other smaller is ideal.

3.  Tell one student "Put the...in the..."  or , "You should recycle the can."

4.  Finally, just have them literally throw them away moving the recycle/trash while students must stay in their seats, unless they come up to get a can, bottle, or paper.  For the boys I move the waste baskets as far away from them as possible.

Here is a fun pass the ball game. Someone else made the template, I just adapted it to this lesson. This game can be played with the ball thrown back and forth with all the students. For a more controlled atmosphere, you can also play it like "Hot Potato" where the students quickly pass it around to eachother.

Here are a couple of worksheets that can be used during the middle or towards the end of the lesson. They both went over well with my higher level, and with a little help, my lower level students as well.
