TALKING ABOUT NATURE
This environment conversation class starts with a warm-up activity in which students look at three photos of people spending time in nature and discuss some questions about them. Then, they look at a list of things people do in nature and share some details about the last time they did these activities. There are also some additional questions in the teacher’s version of the lesson and the e-lesson plan. For example, students can talk about how they feel in nature or why spending time in nature is healthy. After that, students read five ideas on letting more nature into our lives (e.g. plants in public spaces, building schools close to beaches or forests). They need to decide if the ideas are achievable and explain their opinions.
VIDEO & DISCUSSION
The second part of this environment conversation class starts with the video viewing. Then, students discuss the message in the video. They also answer some additional questions. In the next task, students need to say whether they agree with some comments or not. They also need to give reasons for their answers. The comments are about the environment, climate change and the planet. Finally, students look at different activities people can do to help protect the environment. They need to decide which one in each pair they would rather do and why. The activities include for example being vegan, cleaning beaches and not using air-conditioning.
There is also a game in the teacher’s version and the e-lesson plan. The teacher can use it at any point of the lesson, when they feel that students need a break. Students play the game in teams. A team gets a category and needs to come up with three things for it. The categories are related to nature and the environment.

Thank you! I was just thinking about how to do a lesson on this topic. Synchronicity I guess 🙂
Great. Hope you and your students enjoy it 🙂
