Let's look at some traditional food which is eaten at Easter. Look at the mosaic below and choose a photo. Now tell your partner why you chose that photo.
Now look at the word cloud below. Place the words into three groups:
- words that collocate with chocolate
- words that collocate with Easter
- words that collocate with lamb.
Decide whether these words go before or after the words chocolate, Easter and lamb. You may also need to add articles and prepositions.
dark chocolate hot chocolate milk chocolate chocolate bunny chocolate milk a mug of chocolate white chocolate a bar of chocolate (or a chocolate bar) a box of chocolates chunks of chocolate (or chocolate chunks) a square of chocolate
Happy Easter over Easter Easter holiday at Easter Easter week Easter bunny
a leg of lamb stuffed lamb (or lamb stuffed with...) a joint of lamb (or lamb joint) lamb chops a rack of lamb lamb shanks roast lamb to carve lamb tender lamb
We are now going to watch a video. Find a partner. One of you will sit with your back to the screen. The other one will describe what he sees on the screen. The first time you will listen. The second time you will listen and take notes.
Now switch chairs. Let's watch a second video and do the same thing.
Now make a list of the similarities and differences between the two videos.
Draw three columns. Label them hot cross buns, lamb, and chocolate. You are going to watch the first video with the sound on and listen for words related to these three foods. Write them in the columns.
Now watch video 2 with the sound on and listen for differences in the way the food is described. Compare notes with a partner.
Have a conversation in groups of three. Use as much of the vocabulary from today's lesson as you can.
This weekend, take a picture of something you eat at Easter. Bring it to class and be ready to talk about it.
