Informative writing and comprehension Leonardo da Vinci

Informative writing and comprehension Leonardo da Vinci

This animated Power Point presents the story about how Leonardo came to paint the Biblical characters of Jesus and Judas in his famous painting of The Last Supper. Students are required to answer questions from the text to identify nouns, adjectives and verbs, compound words and abstract nouns. They are then required to produce a piece of informative writing about da Vinci organising the information chronologically. As da Vinci had designed a parachute way ahead of its time, words beginning with the prefix para- are examined and pupils are required to match them to their definitions. Finally pupils are given some interesting examples of paradox to discuss with the group. This resource is intended to be used for revision of several aspects of grammar and literary understanding whilst also learning about the artist Leonardo da Vinci and his famous accomplishments. Suitable for ages 10+ of higher ability.

London Tour Bus and tourism  lesson EFL TEFL

London Tour Bus and tourism lesson EFL TEFL

A lesson I made based on the resources from the British Council website https://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/sites/teens/files/tour_of_london_-_exercises_1.pdf Click the sound icon to listen to the dialogue, with each mouse-click a corresponding image comes up for a basic virtual tour. There are then three activities. Students match the tourist spot to the name, number the places chronologically and guess which tourist destination has been visited based on the review given. I've also included filler activities- a word search and colouring page.
