WARM-UP & VIDEO
This lesson about memes starts with an optional warm-up that the teacher can decide to do if they know their students will enjoy it. In this warm-up, students look at some famous memes and discuss them by answering questions. There is a similar activity focused on a particular meme (Success Kid) that is present in the Student’s version of the worksheet. This activity also serves as a lead-in to a video. Students watch the first part of the video and make notes about some topics. After that, they watch the second part of the video and decide if the sentences are true or false. Finally, they discuss the video and say if they find the story interesting and if they know other similar stories.
VOCABULARY & PRACTICE
In this part of the worksheet, students work on vocabulary. They read some comments to the video and match the words in bold to their meanings. Then, teachers can help students to practise the vocabulary by asking them to continue sentences using the words and phrases they have learnt. Students also agree and disagree with the comments. This wouldn’t be a lesson about memes if students didn’t try to create their own memes. So in the next activity, students read captions on the Success Kid meme and discuss whether they are funny. After that, the teacher offers students templates to create their own memes based on their recent achievement or another memorable event. Students exchange their memes and choose the funniest. At the end of the worksheet, students revise the words by completing the gaps in questions. Then, they answer the questions.
