See our "Warm Up & Wrap Up" lesson sheet.Lesson Procedure:Warm Up and Maintenance:See our "Warm Up & Wrap Up" lesson sheet.New Learning and Practice:1. Review animal vocabulary – play "What animal am I?"The song that you are going to sing later in the lesson covers two different vocabulary areas:animals and places. At this stage your students should have covered some animal vocab sothis can be a review of many of those animals. Before class, print out the animal flashcardsfor fish, cow, bear, camel, bat, duck, goat, hippo. Also add any other animals your studentshave studied in previous lessons.Start by modeling: look at a flashcard but don't show anyone. Then act out that animal (alsodoing sounds), for example, walking on all fours saying "moooo!" (for cow). Students canESL KidStuff Lesson Plan:Places & Where We LivePage 2 of 8Copyright ESL KidStuffAll rights reserved

www.eslkidstuff.com Lesson Plans for ESL Kids Teachersput their hands up if they know the answer. Select a student– if he/she answers correctly he/she can do the next animal– show a flashcard and have them do the action. Again, thestudent who answers correctly can do the next animal.Continue until all the animals have been guessed.Finally, stick the flashcards on the board. Put everyone inpairs to take turns in acting out and guessing the animals.2. Teach the vocabulary for placesRemove any animal flashcards from the board that are not in the song and then arrange theremaining animal flashcards in a column from the left-top of the board to the left-bottom(see image below). Make sure the animals are NOT in the order of the song if you are goingto do the listening worksheet (as they will be listening for the correct order).Next take the places flashcards and stick them randomly onto the right-side of the board.You are creating a matching activity on the board – students will need to match the placesto where the animals live.Start with the first animal (e.g. a cow) and say "Hmm. Where does a cow live?". Gesture tothe places pictures on the right. Point to the "sea" flashcard and say, "Does a cow live in thesea?". Make it obvious that this is a crazy idea. Try pointing to a few more places flashcardsuntil everyone has told you the correct card (a farm). Hold the farm flashcard up and chorusit 3 times. Place the farm flashcard next to the cow flashcard and write next to them, "Acow lives on a farm" and chorus 3 times.Then, select a student to come to the board and stick the correct place flashcard next to the2nd animal. If correct, praise the student and ask him/her to sit back down. Chorus theplace 3 times, write the sentence on the board and chorus that 3 times. Continue until allthe animals have places flashcards next to them.ESL KidStuff Lesson Plan:Places & Where We LivePage 3 of 8Copyright ESL KidStuffAll rights reserved

www.eslkidstuff.com Lesson Plans for ESL Kids TeachersBoard layout:You should still have 4 places flashcards remaining on the right-side of the board: city, town,village, countryside.Under the last animal flashcard draw a stick man. Say, "I" and point to yourself. Point toeach of the remaining places flashcards and chorus them. Stick all 4 next to the stick manand write 4 sentences (I live in a city, I live in a town, I live in a village, I live in thecountryside). Chorus all four sentences. Then, say where you live (e.g. pointing at the townflashcard say "I live in a town"). Then go around the class, asking student where they liveand having them all use the correct structure. Help out with the meanings of these words(e.g. a city is very, very big, a village is small, etc. – you can use place names familiar to yourstudents, such as "Tokyo is a city").Now that you have all of the vocab and structures onthe board, let’s practice. Put all students in pairs.Student A says an animal (or the word "I") randomly,and their partner has to say the sentence (readingfrom the board). For example:Student A: "A goat."Student B: "A goat lives on a mountain."ESL KidStuff Lesson Plan:Places & Where We LivePage 4 of 8Copyright ESL KidStuffAll rights reserved

www.eslkidstuff.com Lesson Plans for ESL Kids TeachersGet students to swap roles after each sentence. After a few minutes, explain that thestudents are going to test each other. Pairs sit facing each other – one student with his/herback to the board. The other student says an animal and listens to their partner saying thefull sentence (he/she should help and correct if necessary). Make sure all students have ago at being tested.3. Play the "Flashcards Race" gameYou will need 2 sets of the animals and places flashcards. Have everyone stand up anddivide the class up into two teams – get each team to line up on either side of the classroom.Take the 2 sets of flashcards and shuffle each set. Scatter one set on the floor, face down,on the right-side of the classroom and do the same with the other set on the left-side of theclassroom.Now for the game: the first "player" from each teamwill have to race to find the correct cards and stickthem on the board, according to your instructions.For example, shout "The bat lives in a cave". Theplayers from each team will run to their flashcards onthe floor and turn them over until they find the "bat"and "cave" flashcards, then run to the board and stickthem next to the sentence "A bat lives in a cave"(from point 2 above). Make sure that they leave allthe flashcards on the floor turned face down.Then continue with other students. Each time, the first student to place the correctflashcards next to the correct sentence on the board wins a point for his/her team.Alternative #1: for fun, do silly sentences, such as "The hippo lives in a forest".Alternative #2: instead of putting the cards next to the sentence on the board, erase thesentences before starting the game. Each student then has to find the correct cards, putthem on the board, and write the sentences correctly.4. Sing the "Where Do You Live?" songYou can either have everyone sing and dance along to the song or use our song worksheetas a listening task. Please see the "Gestures for the "Where Do You Live?" song" below forfull instructions.ESL KidStuff Lesson Plan:Places & Where We LivePage 5 of 8Copyright ESL KidStuffAll rights reserved

Read classroom reader "Where do you live?"Before class, download and print off the reader "Where do youlive?" from our website. As you go through each page, point tothe pictures and elicit the different animals and where they are for each animal it will first show a place that they do not live (e.g.a duck in a shoe) and then on the next page the correct place (aduck on a lake) so ask you students if the animal is shown in theright place and then get them to shout out where they think they should live:Teacher: (pointing to the picture of the duck on page 1) What animal is this?Students: A duck!Teacher: Yes, that's right! And what color is this duck?Students: Yellow!ESL KidStuff Lesson Plan:Places & Where We LivePage 6 of 8Copyright ESL KidStuffAll rights reserved

www.eslkidstuff.com Lesson Plans for ESL Kids TeachersTeacher: Yes! And where is the duck? (pointing at the shoe)Students: In a shoe!Teacher: Yes, a shoe - very good! Does a duck live in a show? (looking very doubtful)Students: No!Teacher: That's right! A duck doesn't live in a shoe. Where does a duck live?Students: On a lake?Teacher: Let's check. (Reading) "I am a duck. Do I live in a shoe?" (Turns page) "No! I live ona lake". You were right! Good job!Get the students really involved in the story by asking lots of questions such as what colorsthe animals are and the objects they are shown in.6. Create an "Animal Habitats" wall posterWe'll end with a fun craft activity in which everyone creates a classroom poster. You willneed a large sheet of construction paper / card for the poster sheet (as big as possible).Give everyone a piece of blank A4 paper, colored pens, scissors and any other craft suppliesyou may have (e.g. glitter, cotton wool, etc.). Give everyone a task – to draw, color and cutout an animal or place (use the ones from the song) to stick onto the poster. Depending onthe number of students you have you may need to give more than one picture for eachstudent to do. Just make sure that all 8 animals and places are being made.After everyone has drawn and cut our their pictures, get them to work together to glue thepictures onto the poster. For example, the student who created the bear and the studentwho created the forest will have to make sure they stick their pictures together so the bearis on the forest picture.Finally, have the students draw speech bubbles next the pictures they have made and writeinside the speech bubbles where animals live (e.g. "I am a fish. I live in the sea").ESL KidStuff Lesson Plan:Places & Where We LivePage 7 of 8Copyright ESL KidStuffAll rights reserved
