The lesson starts with a warm-up. Students read a short text about three people who came late for work and make up excuses for why. Students discuss these people and share what they would do in the same situation. After that, teachers can use a lead-in to the next activity and ask students if people are always the same or if they change depending on the situation. Then, students complete the sentences with personality adjectives. The sentences are about people who sometimes have different personalities. Students also think about situations in which they behave differently (e.g. when they are talkative/quiet, people who they are polite/rude to, etc.).
MORE PERSONALITY ADJECTIVES
In this part of the worksheet, students learn more personality adjectives. At first, they look at some sentences and choose the word that makes the most sense. Then, students say if they agree with the statements. Students also discuss more adjectives and decide in which situations they might be negative and in which they might be positive. In the next activity, students read short personality descriptions of three people and answer questions about them. As a final activity, students look at the word cloud and choose the words with any four initial letters from their names. They also explain why they choose these words.
This worksheet on personality adjectives also includes an additional creative task to practise the vocabulary from the lesson that you can use as homework or revision. It’s available in the teacher’s version of the worksheet. You can print it, and hand it out to your students. It’s also included in the e-lesson plan if you teach online.
