Warm-up
Talking about camping
Draw a quick sketch of a tent on the board and ask the
class what it is. Ask what the activity is (camping) and ask
if anyone in the class has ever been camping. Ask them a
few questions about their experience and encourage the
rest of the class to ask them questions also. For example:
- Where did you go?
- Who did you go with?
- Did you enjoy it?
- What did you like best about it?
- What did you like least about it?
- What activities did you do there?
- What did you eat?
Point out the difference between camping in a campsite
with all the amenities and camping in the woods or the
countryside where there are no facilities.

Presentation

Ask the class to open the Pupils Book at page 34 or


display the picture in the On-line Digital Book, if available.
Ask them to look at the picture and say whether it is like
any of their own camping holidays.
82

Unit 4 Lesson 1

Ask them to look at the picture again with a partner and


to name as many objects as they can. Encourage pupils to
ask for the name of any object they do not know.
Predict
Read out the title of the unit and point out the two predict
questions. Let pupils discuss them briefly in pairs. Ask for
answers and accept all opinions at this stage. If any pupils
use the target language (going to + infinitive) at this stage,
repeat the sentence they used and write it on the board.

A Listen and read.


Instruct the pupils to read the story on page 34 to find
out whether their answers to the Predict questions are
correct. Ask them to compare their answers with a partner.
Allow pupils to refer to the text if they need to. Encourage
them to use the phrase: They are going to eat ... when
answering the second question.
Answers: 1. They like fishing and camping, 2. They are
going to eat bread, cheese, fruit and fish.
Tell pupils that they are going to listen to the story. As they
listen, ask them to point to the objects that are mentioned
in the story. Stop at the end of the first paragraph and ask
them how many things they pointed to and what they
were. Then do the same with the second paragraph.

B Look at the pictures.


Ask the pupils to look at the pictures on page 35 in their
Pupils Books. Point to picture number one and ask the class
what it is. Then ask: Who will take the map, Rob or his
grandfather? Help pupils to find the reference to the map
in the text. Explain how to scan a text to look for a specific
word with their finger. When they have found the word,
explain that they should read the sentence carefully to see if
it contains the information that they are looking for.
Instruct the pupils to draw two columns in their
notebooks, one headed Rob and the other Grandfather.
Ask them to write the names of the things that Rob will
take in the first column and the names of the items that
his grandfather will take in the second column.
Ask: How do you know which words go in each column?
Remind them that they will need to refer to the text in
order to find the answers.
Ask them to read the lists aloud to practise pronunciation.

C Imagine youre going camping with your


partner for the weekend. Choose the five most
important things to take with you.

Answers: Paragraph 1. one or two (only the tent is named;


the action going fishing is also mentioned). Paragraph 2.
eight (rucksack, tent, fishing rod, bread, cheese, fruit, map,
compass, torch).
Class CD Track 22: Listen and read.

Ask pupils to complete this task individually. When they


have made a list of five items, ask them to compare their
list with a partner and explain their reasons for including or
not including each item.
Then, ask them to work together to make a joint list
containing only five items. Each pair will then work with
another pair and again select only five items to go on a
joint list.

Rob is going on holiday with his grandfather. They are going


camping! Theyre going to leave on Friday after school.
Robs father is going to drive them to the national park.
Then, Rob and his grandfather are going to walk through
the woods for about two hours. When they get to the river,
they are going to put up the tent and go fishing.

Wrap-up

Rob is going to take a rucksack, a tent, a sleeping bag and a


sleep mat. Hes also going to take his new fishing rod! Hes
not going to take any food because his grandfather is going
to teach him to fish. Robs grandfather is going to take some
bread, some cheese and some fruit. Hes also going to take a
map, a compass and a torch.

Extra practice

When they have finished listening, ask them which items


they heard and correct pronunciation where necessary.

Writing
Ask pupils to write a brief explanation of their joint lists.
Ask them to explain why they think each item is important
and why they have not chosen other items in their lists.

Complete the gaps


Instruct the pupils to work with a partner. Write the
following words on the board and ask them to try to
remember what they refer to in the story:
1. Friday.
2. Robs father.
3. Two hours.
4. Fishing rod.
5. Food.

Unit 4 Lesson 1

83

Answers: 1. They are going to leave on Friday. 2. Robs


father is going to drive them to the national park. 3. They
are going to walk for about two hours. 4. Rob is going to
take his new fishing rod. 5. Rob is not going to take any
food.
Check answers in open class. Encourage the pupil who
answers to make a complete sentence. Encourage the
whole class to help, if necessary.

box.
Ask pupils to work in pairs for this part of the lesson.
Explain that one person will describe something in
picture 1 and the other will compare it with picture 2 and
comment on similarities and differences. Demonstrate
the activity with a volunteer. Ask him or her to describe
something in picture one and then make a comparison
yourself. For example:
Pupil: In picture one theres a man.
Teacher: In picture two there is man, a woman and a boy.
Pupil: In picture one the man has got a map.
Teacher: In picture two, they havent got a map but they
have got a torch.
Instruct the pupils to work with a partner to practise a
similar conversation. When they have finished, ask them
to tell the class some of the differences between the two
pictures.

Wrap-up
True or false

Review the use of going to if necessary inviting
volunteers to tell the class what they are going to do
in the next few days.
The pupils then have to complete the sentences with
going to or not going to.

4 Match the words to the definitions.


Practise writing definitions on the board with
vocabulary from previous units. When you are sure that
the pupils have no difficulty understanding how to find
specific words, ask them to complete exercise 4.

5 Complete the sentences using the words in


the box.
Instruct the pupils to read the words in the box and
the incomplete sentences carefully. They then have to
complete each sentence using the words in the box.

Next summer, I am going on a camping holiday with
my parents. We are going to stay at a campsite by a
river in the mountains. We are going to sleep in a big
tent, so we need our sleeping bags because it is cold in
the mountains at night. My father wants to walk in the
mountains every day, so he is going to take his compass
and my mother is going to take her torch. I hope it
doesnt rain.

Warm-up
Picture guessing game
Select some of the items from the previous lessons that
are easy to draw and write them on cards. Possible words
include: map, tent, compass, fishing rod, fish, fruit, torch,
sleeping bag, sleep mat, etc.
Ask one pupil to come to the front of the class and show
him or her one of the cards. The pupil has to draw a
picture of the word written on the card so that other
pupils can guess what it is.
This may also be played as a team game. Divide the board
into two halves and the class into two teams. You can
either show the same card to the two pupils at the front,
or you can show each of them a different card.

Presentation

and write down what Laura and Michael are
going to do today and at the weekend.
Display the picture on page 37 of the On-line Digital Book
if available. Ask the class to work in pairs and imagine the
conversation between the two children.
Instruct them to help you to build an imaginary dialogue
on the board. Use the pupils ideas and ask them to correct
other classmates suggestions if they are not correct.

Tell the class that you are going to play a short dialogue
and that they have to listen and compare it to the one
on the board. Play Class CD Track 25 and ask partners to
compare answers.
 lass CD Track 25: Copy this chart in your

Unit 4 Lesson 3

87

Instruct pupils to look at the chart on page 37. Ask them


how many pieces of information they need to complete
the chart (4). Ask them to copy the chart into their
notebooks and to fill in everything they remember from
the converasation they heard. Play Class CD Track 25 again
and allow time for pupils to complete their answers. Play a
third time and check answers in open class.
Refer to the examples in the grammar box. Point out that
the verb to be changes depending on the subject, but
that going to and the verb which follows it, stay the same.
Ask pupils to read out a contracted form of each of the
sentences in the first table (Im going to take a tent and a
sleeping bag).
Drill the pronunciation of the target language. Place special
emphasis on the stress and rhythm of the sentences.
Point out that when the verb to go is the main verb, we
often ommit it. We do not usually say going to go. For
example: Im going (to go) to the cinema; Im going (to go)
cycling.

B Work with your partner. Ask each other what


you are going to do.
Model the task with a volunteer. Ask him or her what he
or she is going to do tomorrow. When the pupil answers,
respond to the answer in a natural way, before asking
another question. Encourage your partner to ask you
questions too, so that the model dialogue is similar to the
one the class has listened to.
After modeling the task, ask pupils to work with a partner
to practise a similar dialogue. When they have finished,
ask them to change partners and repeat the exercise.
Walk around the classroom and correct any mistakes they
may make. When all pupils have spoken to two or more
partners, ask one or two pairs to model their dialogues.

Wrap-up
Answer my question
Ask the class questions about their partnerss plans. Ask
several pupils: Who did you speak to? What is [partners
name] going to do tomorrow / next summer? Encourage
the rest of the class to help to correct any mistakes their
classmates make.

Presentation
A Imagine that your class is going to go on a trip
to a national park next week. Before you go,
your teacher explains some of the rules.
Ask the class if they have ever been to a national park. Talk
about which national parks they have been to, what they
are like and what people can do there. Ask them if there
are any special rules for people who visit national parks.
Ask them to open the Pupils Book at page 38 and display
the pictures in the On-line Digital Book, if available.
Instruct them to look at the pictures and discuss what is
happening in each one with a partner. Finally, ask them to
decide which pictures show something they must do and
which show something they mustnt do.

pupils say: Dont pick flowers.
Ask pupils to do the rest of this exercise individually in their
notebooks and then compare answers with a partner.
Invite volunteers to write their answers on the board.
Pupils may come up with rules that are different from the
answers given here; accept all correct answers.
Answers: 1. Dont pick flowers, 2. Dont make fires, 3.
Respect birds and other animals, 4. Dont throw rubbish in
the river / Throw rubbish in the bins, 5. Dont take eggs /
birds eggs out of nests.

C Write some more rules of your own. Then make


a poster explaining how to behave in the
countryside.
Ask pupils to work in pairs to think of more rules and to
note them down in their notebooks. Help weaker pupils
who may be stuck for ideas.
When pupils have written at least four ideas, ask them to
plan how they will illustrate their poster. Remind them that
they must include the rules alongside their pictures. The
rules may be written or illustrated with symbols or pictures.
When pupils have a plan, ask them to draw a quick sketch
of their poster in their notebooks and show it to you so
that you can check the grammar / spelling of any writing
they include in their posters. Finally, give them a sheet of
poster paper and coloured felt-tip pens, and ask them to
make their posters.

Wrap-up

When all the pupils have finished their posters, display


them around the classroom. Encourage the whole class
to walk around and read each otherss work. Ask them to
find one unique feature on each poster.

Extra practice

Dictate the following text to the class. Ask them to write it
down exactly as you read it out (you may wish to say that
it will be a bit surprising):
When you go to the countryside, you must always throw
your rubbish on the ground. You should also pick flowers
and make fires. And dont forget you must always take
birds eggs home with you.
When they have finished, ask them to compare their text
with a partner to check they have copied the dictation
correctly.

Warm-up
Picture dictation
Instruct the pupils to take out a pencil and open their
notebooks. Give them the following instructions: Draw a
long road that goes through a valley to a high mountain.
On one side of the mountain, draw a tree. On the other
side of the mountain, draw a boy and a girl. Next to the
tree, draw a cow. In the tree, draw a small bird. At the
foot of the mountain there is a lake. Draw the lake. Draw
a small island in the middle of the lake. Draw a boat
sailing on the lake.
Tell the pupils to compare their drawings in pairs and
focus on the similarities and differences.

Presentation

Display the picture on page 39 of the On-line Digital Book,


if available, and ask pupils to open the Pupils Book and
cover the text.
It is important that pupils observe the map carefully before
reading the dialogue. Ask them to name all the features
they can see on the map and write them on the board,
for example: mountains, sea, river, roads, campsite, sports
centre, zoo, bus station, swimming pool, amusement park,
art museum, hospital, etc.

A Look at the map and read the dialogue.


Instruct the class to look at the illustration and to point to
where the boy and the girl are standing on the map (they
are at the harbour by the boats).
Ask the class to read the dialogue and then ask: Where is
the boy at the beginning? (the harbour) Where does he
want to go? (the campsite). Ask them to read the girls
instructions and to follow the route she suggests with their
finger. Tell them to check that her instructions are correct.
Now, ask the class to work in pairs to find a different way
to get to the campsite. Explain that the boy likes walking
in natural surroundings and does not always want to
follow roads to get to the campsite.

Unit 4 Lesson 5

91

B Work with a classmate. Select a starting point


and a destination on the map and write some
directions together.
Ask the pupils to choose a starting point and a destination.
They then have to trace a route out with their fingers
(it need not be the most direct route). When they have
decided on the route, ask them to write down the
directions and include the starting point but not the
destination.
Help pupils with the language they need in order to make
the directions clear and concise.

Wrap-up

Ask pupils to exchange directions with another pair. Ask


them to trace the route and find the destination. Ask
pupils to explain any mistakes or unclear directions to their
partners.

Extra practice

Tell the pupils to change partners and to write another


set of directions. This time, they have to write out the
directions and give the name of the destination, but not
the starting point.
You may need to ask pupils to explain how they think they
are going to find the starting point if they are only given
the destination. The answer is that they have to start at the
destination and trace the route backwards. You may need
to model this with the On-line Digital Book, if available. If
it is not, hold up the map in the book and trace the route
as a pupil reads it aloud.
