BRIEF OUTLINE: Students use weather related vocab and conversation to exchange information about the weather.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After practicing the weather words with the class, students match the number from the right to the icons on the left.
    3. Starting from Sapporo and going clockwise part A is for students to ask 'How's the weather in ______?' Teacher gives an answer 'It's _____.' The students then write the corresponding number( or word if you prefer).
    4. Again, starting from Sapporo and going clockwise, the teacher/students change roles and the teacher asks the students 'How's the weather in ____?' Pick, at random, students who will give their own answer. All of the students make their own choice for part B.

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Weather conversation for 2nd Grade Total English 2 p.26
  • Although I added my own weather icons (3), they can be changed easily.

    This worksheet is only for Japan, and from Total English 2 p.26.
    There is a part 2 that deals with cities around the world, that will be a different worksheet.

    Although you can just print these worksheets out, I often change them, or just make new ones with the same idea because every school/teacher will have different qualities/experiences that they prefer to do in their own way.
