Our Unique Planet
Педагогика и дидактика
As a warming up exercise for today I have prepared a short practicing in reading. Look at the monitors. The words will be there for only two seconds and your task is to read them correctly. Read aloud and think carefully. We’ll see who the champion is! And your home task was to speak about the beauty of the world and to write colour poems. It’s time to check it and listen to you.

Основна частина уроку:
The project The Space to be watched (Power Point)
The pupils work with specially created tasks (Power Point).
(Forests, rainforests, deserts, savannas, mountains, fields, gardens, steppes, rivers, seas, cities, towns, villages…)
Make groups of four and choose one of the things that you have mentioned. Now imagine that you are the thing you have chosen (for example a forest) and prepare a short presentation of it. Tell us about the way you look like, about your life, problems, etc. I will give you an example.
Hi! I am a forest. I am very big and strong. I consist of not only trees and bushes, but also grass, animals, insects, birds. Every season I look different. In spring I am the happiest. The leaves are fresh and green, the birds begin singing their songs and building nests, the sun warms me and I am very beautiful. In summer I am thick and full of life. The rains wash me, the winds strengthen me and my life changes day by day. In autumn I am graceful. My dress is colourful, I am rich in mushrooms and berries. And I prepare for winter. Like people sleep at night, I sleep in winter. I need this rest to get ready for the next spring. The most important problem for me is that people cut down trees and I become smaller. Please, stop it. My inhabitants and I wont be able to go on if you dont!
And as soon as you are ready, present your pairs. Dont forget that you are a group and everyone must take part in work and speak in the presentation.
The nature on the Earth is very wonderful, rich and colourful.
The seasons are parts of the year which differ in weather.
There is no doubt that the Earth is beautiful.
Animals are living organisms. They come in many shapes and sizes. They live throughout the world. No one knows exactly how many kinds of animals there are. Birds are animals with feathers. All birds have wings, however not all birds can fly. All birds lay eggs, the majority of them live in nests. Fish are animals that live in water. The various kinds of fish differ greatly in shape, colour and size. Almost all fish have fins, which they use for swimming. Insects are small six-legged animals. About one million of animals are insects. The world of insects includes some of the most beautiful and fantastic animals on earth.
What is the text about?
What kinds of animals do you know?
How do they differ?
Well, today we were speaking about the world. We watched at it from the space, we imagined ourselves different parts of the landscape, we learned much about the animals. But where is our place in this world? Do people stay aside? Of course not. We are the part of the world like everything else.
Заключна частина уроку:
As a summary of the lesson listen to the quotation and say what you think about it. Does it relate to our lesson?
“The deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. The Earth is our mother. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family.” Chief Seattle
Can we say that we are the family? That animals are also our relatives?
Домашнє завдання: Write a short report the epithet for which will be the quotation by Chief Seattle.
