The students learn some vocabulary for the parts of a plant and complete sentences to check they’re using the new vocabulary appropriately.

Target language: parts of a plant.

In this lesson about the life cycle of a plant, students will learn some Biology vocabulary by watching a video and completing a worksheet. They’ll complete and colour a picture of a flower, then write a description of it. One extension activity is for the students to plant seeds in the classroom and observe their growth.

Listen to teachers talking about how they would adapt this lesson. They also discuss how to use CCQs and how they feel about CLIL:
