Find the rhymes to the following words and write them down:
Institution – pollution
Taste – waste
Because – cause
Cottage – shortage
Both – growth
Fear – atmosphere
Great and will you try to compound the sentence using as many words from the list as you can.
Основна частина уроку:
We discussed the problem of pollution at our previous lesson. And we have found out that many species of animals and plants are in danger. Your task was to find some information about them. Read your reports, please.
OK. I advise you to sum up. Let's work in two groups. I have two diagrams for you. Your task is to write the reasons of the extinction of species. Begin with the most essential and the most important ones and then go to less important. You will probably
have different ideas. And then we shall discuss.
Great. Let's have a look at your diagrams and discuss.
How many reasons have you got?
What do you think is the main reason?
Are the reasons related?
Who is to blame?
What is the way out?
Why do you think it's important to save species? Isn't it easier to let the process go?
I have a scrambled sentence here. There are ten words that you have to place correctly and you'll get a famous saying that is perfect as the motto for the next part of our lesson.
Want, it, yourself, If, anything, be, you, to, done, do.
(If you want anything to be done, do it yourself.)
Right. It means that if you want to save the planet and stop pollution, start doing this yourselves. Everyone must understand that one can do more than he or she ever imagines for the improving of the situation.
Give me your ideas about what you personally can do.
(save water, feed animals and birds, never dump, never do harm to plants, nests and holes, save electricity, keep the yard clean, do not burn things, use less washing powder, having a picnic leave the place clean, plant trees...)
Well done. And I also want you to realize that actually there is much to do for people. One of the ideas is in the text. Read it and underline the correct words.
Use Rubbish Again
A lot of what we throw away is still necessary/useful. It's possible in fact to recycle about 80% of domestic dump/rubbish. Recycling saves trees, energy, money, cuts pollution/extinction. It may be interesting/interested to know that the average people/person in Los Angeles throws away seven kilos of rubbish a day, while the average person in the Third World throws away only one kilo on/every day. Britain throws/throw away seven million tons of paper every year. That's the some/same as 80 million trees.
The problem is that recycling is expensive. But recycling helps fight environmental/environment problems.
Now let's have some rest and play "Bingo!"
Write into the table nine things you do to save energy, water, to protect nature, to reduce dumping – good things to do for all the people and the planet.
Now I read some statements to you. If you hear the idea you have written, cross it. When you have three crossings across, diagonally or down, say "Bingo!" OK! Let's start.
You turn off the light when you do not need it.
You try to use less household chemistry.
You regularly clean the territory near your house.
You never throw away rubbish in the street.
You feed birds and animals.
You do not burn things.
You do not destroy nests.
You plant trees.
You return scrap paper in order to recycle it.
And the last thing for us to discuss today is the greenhouse effect or a global warming, which means the increase of world temperature.
What is the greenhouse effect?
I have prepared an electronic test for you. There are some statements in it that are either correct or not. Choose correct ones.
(Test: Greenhouse effect)
Now let us do it together and discuss the statements. Prove them if you believe they are true or disprove if they are untrue.
The atmosphere is like a blanket of gases around the Earth.
This blanket protects the Earth from the heat of the Sun.
The atmosphere does not change because of pollution.
The rising of temperature causes changes in climate.
It has become hotter because we are producing too mane gases which hold heat.
The climatic changes do not endanger the life on the planet.
Because of the extra heat the temperature on the Earth becomes lower.
The level of the water does not depend on the greenhouse effect.
There are some holes in the atmosphere and they let the heat of the Sun pass through.
And as a final part of the discussion, I think it will be important to identify if it is possible to reduce the greenhouse effect. Fill in the blanks in the text, read it and translate.
In recent years, the number of ... problems has increased dangerously. One of the most serious problems is ... in the ... which has led to the ... effect. This is making the ... warmer. Cutting down on fumes from cars and buses would help to solve the .... Natural resources are not endless, so using other forms of ... such as sun, wind, and water would help.

Planet, recycling, problem, greenhouse, environmental, energy, changes, atmosphere.

Write a short summary :"the Beauty of the World Is in Danger", start workinhg with the projects "The World around Us".
Final lesson in the 7th form on the theme: The World Around Us Is Beautiful.
Teacher: Good morning? Dear pupils and dear colleagues! Today we are going to have a very exciting, interesting and educative lesson. Its theme is "The World Around us!" There are so many spheres, ideas and topics for discussion in these four words. But this is the final lesson on this subject for us. Let's try to sum up everything we have learnt.
Well, let's start! And the first task for you is a short warming-up game called "Backing-up". In this game pupils read sentences backward one by one beginning with the last word. Then in each repetition add one more word till the sentence is complete. The sentence for you today is an epigraph for the lesson.
The Earth is a tiny part of the Universe and the only place where human beings can live.
Teacher: Thank you. And now I want to tell you what a Universe is. According to the definition of Encyclopedia Britannica:
The Universe is the whole cosmic system of matter and energy of which the Earth is a part. It is between 10 and 20 billion years old. It consists of galaxies. The Solar System, where the Earth is located, is a small part of Milky Way Galaxy and is far from the galactic centre.
Isn't it impressive?
Now, look at the blackboard. There are some words there. Choose the words you can use to describe the Universe.
The words: wide, tiny, spacious, impressive, disordered, old, boundless, unreal, unique, impossible, young.
Don't forget to say your sentence. E.g. The Universe is spacious.
Teacher: Well, it's better to see once than to hear many times. I offer you to watch the first page of the project "The World Around Us". It is called "The Space". (The project is created in Power Point and contains the pictures and some information on the subject.)
