Yes, it’s a belated April Fool’s Day post – but a great clip which can be used at any time as it gets students talking. I showed the clip below to a group of seven-year-olds as an introduction to April Fool’s Day and was amazed at the language they produced after watching it. When I asked what they had seen in the clip, they came out with some great sentences, using language we have recently been studying in class:
The penguins are flying!
The man is bigger than the penguins.
There’s a glacier, a beach, a jungle and trees.
I think I’ll be showing the younger classes more short clips as warmers – they are motivated to talk about what they’ve seen and there are such a lot of great clips out there for us to use in class.
