The lesson is based on the TEDTalk by Andy Hobsbawm titled “Do the green thing” and it concerns a very important issue of the environment protection. The speaker introduces his idea of a creative approach to promoting nature preservation.
The first task of the worksheet is synonym-matching of the vocabulary which then helps students discuss some points in the second exercise. There is a picture of some methods of environment protection that can help students to come up with ideas. The next task focuses of filling the gaps in the text which is about the service “Do The Green Thing”. After that, there is one discussion point to make students speculate whether the service can be useful. The last task is a discussion exercise that concerns the talk itself and aspect mentioned in it.
