Each lesson should take around 45-60 minutes depending on your learners. You can also use the 2005 version of the film to help accompany the teaching of the scheme as well as the extracts references.

New Identities speaking activity for EAL/ESL students

New Identities speaking activity for EAL/ESL students

These were created for my primary age ESL students but would work well with a class studying "children in the world". There are 27 identities in total, which are printed on three pages. Cut out the identities and give each child one. Encourage them to circulate around the class and "meet " the other children. They need to ask questions to find out about the others. Tell them that these are real children from around the world. The information was taken from the Time for Kids site (with a few additions for information about pets). They can look for similarities and differences as well.
