Навколишнє середовище: як зберегти його здоровим для людей - Урок

13. How old is Elzeard when he dies? Why is it so important that he had a long life?

STEP 4 : CHARACTERISTICS OF ELZEARD BOUFFIER.

The aim of the task isto train the vocabulary that characterizes people and their actions.

The pupils answer the questions 'How would you describe the personality of Elzeard Bouffier? They are supposed to use the words likeoptimistic, reserved, shy, patient, generous, hard-working, reliable, sensitive, kind, caring creative, decisive, etc.Using these words in sentences, the pupils have to explain their

choice of characteristics giving the reasons. While doing this task we develop the ideas of keeping the environment green and healthy for people, the importance of planting trees and taking care of them.

Key words:

optimistic ,reserved, shy, patient, imperturbable, generous, hard-working, reliable, sensitive, kind, caring, creative, decisive.

(the key words are on the screen)

The pupils answer the teacher's questions:

What did he devote his life to? What message did Elzeard Bouffier try to make about nature?

STEP 5: ELZEARD'S MESSAGE TO NEXT GENERATIONS.

The pupils sum up their ideas, e.g. The main message of his life was hard work for the sake of preserving nature and turning barren wasteland into a safe , blooming land. It takes about 30- 40 years to grow a forest but it takes just some minutes to cut down a tree or some hours to burn the forest down.

The teacher demonstrates slide show about healthy/damaged environment and we come back to the work with the cards. The teacher demonstrates illustrations of different sights (pictures of nature), and the pupils answer the questions:

If Elzeard Bouffier had lived at the end of the XX-th, beginning of the XXI-th centuries, what kind of surrounding could he have seen?

What kind of message could he have left if he had seen such spectacles of nature?

The pupils have key words which help them to comment the pictures. (See card B)

Key words:

Adjectives: protected, safe, secure, friendly, pleasant, (un)healthy, magnificent, inspiring, exciting, breathtaking, impressive, fertile; picturesque, harmonic, multicoloured, (un)damaged

(un)stable, barren, poor, wild, dangerous, hostile, abandoned, dull, miserable.

Verbs: improve, preserve, protect, save, suffer (positive)

damage, pollute, ruin, contaminate, deforest (negative)

forest clearing, young seal, turtle, plastic bag

Forest fires, cut down/ chop down trees, deserts instead of forests, droughts, famine, wasteland.

Complete the sentences:

If we don't take care of wildlife, many animals ....(be) in danger.

If there were not forest fires, fertile soils ...(not turn) into wastelands.

If people ...(not destroy) forests, they would not change into deserts.

If people ....(pay) more attention to environmental protection, they would be happier and healthier.

If we ...( not stop) ruining nature, we will not survive.

If people ...(not contaminate) air and soil, they would get better crops and be richer.

Unless we (fight) pollution, we cannot safeguard our children's future.

To sum up their discussion the pupils read the words from the screen:

'I wish you always:

Air to breathe,

Fire to warm you,

Water to drink and

the Earth to live in.

I wish this to you from my heart' -

which can be regarded as the message to the coming generations.

Each card has a quotation about the importance of preserving trees and forests in good condition.

'We haven't inherited the Earth from our fathers. We are both borrowing it from our children.'

The pupils are given time to read, think everything over and express their ideas about the quotation. All ideas are greeted and discussed. (a slide is on the screen)

To finish the lesson, the teacher demonstrates the photo of ' The Earth eyes' with the words 'It's your world! Take care of it!' and sums up the results of the work.

As a kind of home assignment the pupils are suggested writing a profile of Elzeard Bouffier and the job he had done to keep the environment green and healthy for people.
