The worksheet starts with a brainstorming activity for the whole class. Students have to make a list of types of milk they know. Then, they look at the different types of milk on their list and say what kind of people use each type. The second task consists of a few questions about how milk consumption.


This part includes two tasks. First, students read a few sentences and match verbs in bold to correct meanings. In this task, students will learn verbs such as flavour, soak, dilute, drain, rinse, etc. To practise the verbs, students play a game of ‘Noughts and Crosses’. They take turns to choose a square. To ‘win’ the square and draw an ‘O’ or an ‘X’, they explain how the verb can be used with some kind of food (except milk). The winner is the first player to make a row of noughts or crosses in any direction.


Next, students move to two listening comprehension tasks. They watch the first part of a video about plant-based milks and decide whether a few given statements are true or false. Before watching the second part of the video, students have to use their own knowledge and ideas to choose correct options to complete sentences about different types of milk. It is best done in pairs or groups of three or four so they can share their ideas. Then, they watch the second part of the video to check their answers. Finally, they hold a short discussion about the ideas in the video and milk drinking habits.


The lesson plan ends with an English class project. Students work in pairs or groups. Each group will be given one card with information about a particular type of milk. They have to invent a brand name and a slogan, and design a label for their product. When finished, they present their product to the rest of the class. The activity can also be done individually.
