Day five: Writing recipes


  • Students will be able to write a target-language version of the recipes they have chosen for their class banquet.
  • Students will illustrate each prepared food or drink for a class recipe book.
  • Students will work in groups.

Setting the Stage (5 minutes)

Input (20 minutes)

Teacher shows Slides 44 - 60 of the Healthy Eating slide show. Teacher reinforces student participation and comprehension by circling or recycling the vocabulary with who-what-when-where-why questions about each slide. Teacher can ask for students to volunteer names of famous people as answers to the comprehension questions. Teacher spends up to 2 minutes on each slide.

Independent Practice (25 minutes)
