The worksheet starts with a warm-up activity which includes a few different terms such as flexitarians, raw vegans, pescetarians, etc. Students’ task is to guess what these people eat. Some of the terms might be self-explanatory while others might be tricky. Let your students brainstorm for a while but don’t spend too much time on that. In the next task, they move to another vocabulary task. This time they have to complete questions with food-related words from a box. Finally, they have to answer these questions which are all connected with food and dieting.


In this part of our veganism lesson plan, students will watch a short TV news report about vegan economy in the UK.
