Does anyone have anything for this lesson? I thought about doing  a lesson on crazy animal facts in order to teach the " You know what? Dogs can smile." Expression but thats the only idea i've got so far. ><

Yeah, I might have them practice structuring their sentences in the subject/verb/object format in order to state an interesting fact. Simple sentence structures.

Then have them play a trivia game to help stimulate their interest.

If you want to have them practice speaking, you could make go-fish cards with interesting animal facts that they have to match up.

Some form of boardracing would also work for this.

You could also try a hotseat game, and make them structure the word into a sentence for an extra point (if they don't know anything interesting about the word, it can just be a general fact -- a few students might find it funny to say, "You know what? Apples are fruit." I might take this idea and make a "Captain Obvious" themed hotseat game, haha).

Or have a sentence auction where they have to bid on incorrect sentences that they have to fix in order to get points (how many points each fixed sentence is worth can either be based on how complex the sentence is or on something more random like secret points that are only revealed after the sentence has been fixed -- and if they fail to fix the sentence, the sentence goes back up for auction for another team to bid on). This would be a great way to have them practice sentence structure, too.

I should start and say this is super basic vocab of the lesson, I needed it for an open class, so it by no means everything. However hope it helps somewhat :) it's pretty self explanatory, I had students, stand up to come guess the country locations directly on the board.

I spent quite a long time on the intro as well for the lesson, talking about South America, looking up various places in South America, from the driest place on earth to the 3rd wettest place. We also spoke about lamas, alpacas, and kuna. I stuck mostly to the textbook due to time constraints. However for the speaking portfolio I had kids work in groups to look up and talk about various countries, they then had to speak to other groups for info about different countries and finally fill in the worksheet that accompanied the book for the speaking portfolio.
