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.

SSo, we had the student watch a youtube clip about the Three R's: reduce, reuse, recycle. 

Here are the lyrics to the song.

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.

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".

Has anyone downloaded this link to a video file? The link is blocked on my school computer and I'd love to check it out.

Just did a Prezi on this topic for my blog, might be a few ideas you could get from it including 2 videos and a song. The link to the presentation is at the top of the page. Good luck!

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.

Here is an intro PPT with a few games that I made for this chapter.  My co teacher loves using the book so there are references to a few activities in the book.

I just filled in the gangnam template with easy questions from chapter 10. My kids are pretty low level so I kept it basic.
