In this lesson students talk about pets and the responsibilities that come with them. Students also learn some vocabulary connected to the topic and discuss more pet-related aspects.
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 discussion activity in which students share their experience of owning a pet. After that, students work with vocabulary. They do a matching activity and complete common phrases (e.g. be allergic to fur, scratch the furniture, cuddle and play with your pet). Then, students talk about the article and list three things that a person should consider before they decide to get a dog. They also discuss whether they agree with the author, what a person should consider before getting a cat or a fish, and whether getting a pet for children is a good idea.
The lesson finishes with a speaking activity in which students agree or disagree with different statements about pets (e.g. ‘People who have a pet are never lonely’, ‘Pets can be a great birthday present’, etc.) and explain why.
