WARM-UP & DISCUSSION
In the warm-up activity of this ESL worksheet about music, students look at nine words connected with music. They need to put them into three categories of three words. They also need to name the categories. Then, students look at six photos of people listening to music in different situations. They discuss why the people are listening to music and whether they listen to music in those situations. Students also need to answer some questions about the photographs. Next, students read six statements and decide which ones are true, sometimes true or never true. The statements refer to dancing, playing musical instruments, songs in English, etc.
LISTENING & SPEAKING
In the second part of this ESL worksheet about music, students listen to three short pieces of music. They discuss some questions after listening to each one. For example, they have to say how the music made them feel and where they would expect to hear it. The three links are provided in the student’s and the teacher’s versions of the worksheet. In the e-lesson plan, the pieces can be played in the presentation. After the listening part, students read two quotes on music and answer some questions about each one. They also answer some general questions, e.g. about soundtracks. Finally, students do a speaking task which can take more or less time depending on the teacher’s decision. They look at nine music-related topics (e.g. playlists, changing music tastes, concerts, musicals), choose one and tell their partner about it. The partner then asks them a follow-up question. Next, students change roles. The teacher can choose to set a time frame for each round. Students can continue until they have used all the topics.
