Role Cards made by me for a mixed nationality class of Advanced C1 adults
Follow up activity
NAME OF ACTIVITY: Simulation (banning plastics from your town)
HOW LONG: 20 min approx.
AIMS: This activity helps to improve the speaking skills and recycle vocabulary.
Set up the situation. Divide the class into groups of 3 students.
Give the role cards to the students. Each student is then allocated a role within a specific scenario. For this activity the scenario is: one student is the mayor of a little town in the mountains where there’s also a lake; the other two students are the community’s representatives who want to suggest measures to reduce plastic pollution.
Give the students some time to prepare. The Mayor needs to write some questions to ask, whilst the others need to prepare what they would like to tell the Mayor about their plans to ban plastics.
Oversee and manage the simulation.
If you like manipulative activities, this “Petit Atelier Conjugaison” can be of your interest. I prepared this little manipulative verb workshop to practice French verb conjugation with my Year 7 students. The “cocotte” can also be used to play with vocabulary. The idea is to learn while having fun :-)))
Lesson plan for a monolingual class of upper-intermediate students (adults).
