Hi Friends! Book 1 Lesson 7



This lesson introduces the question, "What's this?" and focuses on asking it in a natural manner.  Amongst others, the activities employed are a "silhouette" and "black box" game.  S & BB are good ‘sight’ and ‘touch’ activities because they do not burden the students with having to know too much English.


In the final area of this lesson, each group will deliver their own original quiz to the class. 


Also, this lesson will try to raise the students’ interest in language in general by showing, using kanji characters as examples, how completely separate words when combined can form a word with a new meaning: 海月 (kurage) jellyfish, 海星(hitode) starfish, etc.


本単元では、What's this?を自然な形で使う場面として、「シルエット・クイズ」や「ブラック・ボックス・クイズ」などのクイズを出し合う活動を取り上げた。これらのクイズは、視覚や触覚などの情報がヒントとなるため、児童は、"What's this?"と言うだけでよく、表現で過度な負担をかけることはない。
