Freddie and his Friends comic story

This time I tried something new. I turned the original comic into a film and put it on the Youtube. You can play the video to your students and they watch and try to understand the story.  The story itself is quite easy so you can do it even with elementary students.

The story is especially convenient when you have between 4 and 15 minutes.

Here is the lesson plan:

  1. Play the video. (2 minutes)
  2. Play the video, stop it when necessary and check that the students understand the words. (5 minutes)
  3. Divide the class into two teams and play the Hoopshot game (8 minutes)
  4. Ask the students to do the Storyboard games as their homework. (2 minutes)

Then divide the classroom into two teams and play the basketball game to check their comprehension.

In the end you can ask your students to practise the language used in the comic by playing the storyboard game. In this way they will learn a lot of English in an enjoyable way.
