The students were so tired today, they had obviously used their last night together to good effect. So, we started the day with bingo, and word games. Then we spent a little time finishing up the fire brigade unit by thinking about what characteristics a fire fighter should probably have. We came up with courage, strength, and helpfulness, along with a few others.
The final mini-unit was entitled ‘save the whale’. The class suggested notions of why whales should be protected and then wrote them down in a short text. I thought that this would be a fitting final assignment that highlighted the plight of some of these creatures. The students produced some insightful reasons as to why we should protect whales, including the memorable question: why must they die?
We closed the lesson by going outside to sit on the grass and talk. It seemed a very fitting way for an English course to end. 🙂
