As it’s Friday, I thought it would be a good day to publish this post and encourage your A2 students to go for an awe walk!
I’m going to share a couple of sheets that I’ve prepared for use outside.
I realise that a lot of you might have restricted freedom for moving around right now, but I hope that you will at least be able to get outside for a short period each day. Here where I live in Spain, we’re currently allowed to move around in our municipality, or slightly further if we’re running or cycling.
The first activity – Go outside, count and write – would probably be easier to do if you live in or near the countryside, but I’m sure that in cities where there is a little green space nearby, it would also work.
And the second activity – On your walk – is designed to be used over a period. Learners can choose two of the things individually each time, or the whole group can choose two of the categories and find and count them.
With both activities, I’d share experiences and surprises in the class. If learners have a camera, they could take photos of the things they found. I didn’t have to look far to find some grey stones as I have lots in my garden!
You could also take a few photos and ask learners to guess where they were taken – for example, of a particular tree near your school, etc.
