In this lesson, students discuss the article they read at home about an unusual Guinness World Record, talk about breaking records and learn some collocations.
This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.
The lesson starts with a warm-up in which students put some Guinness World Records in order from the one which required most effort to the one that required least effort. Then, students need to choose the correct word for each sentence (e.g. break the record, achieve a goal, challenge yourself) in a multiple-choice task. They also have to answer the questions which are included in the task.
Next, students discuss some questions about breaking records, achieving goals and different Guinness World Records. Finally, students share which of the things from a provided list they would challenge themselves to do and why. The list includes running 15 km, cooking for 50 people or reading 52 books a year. The teacher can also choose to encourage students to talk about other records they would like to beat.
