The students talk about what they like and don’t like about their own country and invent a new country.

Target language: geographic features.

In this lesson about countries, students will use a table to note down some information about their country and decide which things they like and which things they don’t like. Then, in groups, the students will take one aspect of life and discuss how it could be different. After forming new groups, the students will create a new country and give it a name. Finally, students will present their countries to each other and decide which new country they’d like to live in or visit.

Listen to teachers talking about how they would adapt this lesson. They also discuss how to differentiate approaches to teaching and learning:
