Lesson 45

Teaching Aims:

  1.Practise on offering suggestions.

  2.Make dialogues about keeping fish, binds, etc.

  3.Study the language items in the lesson.

Step I Warming--up

  The teacher asks the students the questions:

  Do you keep animals?

  If yes, what kind of animal do you keep?

  Do you find keeping animals interesting?

  Tell us something important about keeping fish, birds or other animals. Divide the class into four groups. Give them a few minutes for the discussion. Then collect answers from the class. Get several students to report their discussion.

  The teacher sums up and says, “Today, we are going to learn Lesson 45. In the dialogue, two friends, Kate and Li Qun, are talking about keeping fish.”

Step II Watching

  Page 67. Part one. Read the introduction to the dialogue aloud. Ask the Students to cover the dialogue silently and quickly to find out the answer to the question:

  What does Li Qun advise Kate to do?

  Allow them a few moments to carry out the task. Check the answer.

  Get a large tank to keep the fish.

Step III Listening

Books closed. Present more questions before playing the tape:

  Where does Kate want to keep the fish?

  What’s wrong with keeping fish in a bowl?

  What size tank should she get?

  What should she put in the tank,

  Play the tape of the dialogue. Get another 4 students to give out the answers.

  ——In a round bowl. The fish can’t get enough air in a bowl. She should get one about 30 centimetres by 30 cm by 50 cm. A few large rocks and some underwater plants.

Step Language points

  A. the other day = a few days ago

  B. So are the fish; the fish are small, too.

  C. They don’t get enough air: with a bowl, only a small surface area of the water is in contact with the air. So the water does not receive any oxygen.

  D.30 cm by 30 cm by 50 cm:

  We describe two - dimensional and three - dimensional measurements using the word by. So the length of the tank is 50 cm, and the width and height both 30 cm.

  E. underwater plants: These plants oxygenate the water and keep it clear.

  F. for one thing = one reason (for putting plants in the tank)

Step V Practice

Page 67. Part 2. Write the question on the Bb:

  What should I do to keep a dog / a cat, etc.?

  Ask the Students to choose a specific kind of animal, and offer their suggestions by using the following expressions:

  I suggest (that)

  You should

  You ought to

  You need to

  First the teacher practises the dialogue with a good student as an example. Then the class do it in pairs. Get 2 pairs of students to come to the front and demonstrate their dialogues.

  Do similar practice using the words and phrases in part 2. This time get the students to change roles.

Step VI Exercises

Ex.1 Call the students’ attention to the changes of the verb tenses, personal pronouns and word older. After doing the exercise orally, ask them to do it as written work.

Ex. 2 Let’s the students work in pairs and then check with the whole class.

Ex. 3 Get the students to read aloud the words and tell what each of them means.

Step VII Homework

  1. Finish the Workbook exercises.

  2. Read the dialogue

  3.Preview Lesson 46.

Lesson 46

Teaching Aims

  1.Review the language points and sentence patterns through the study of the text.

  2.Grammar- The Past Participle as Attribute and Object Compliment.

Step I Revision

  1. Check the homework exercises.

  2. Get the students to act out their dialogue about the bird or fish.

Step II Warming-up

The teacher may ask the questions:

  How many animals do you know? Give out their names.

  Dog, cat, tiger, lion, pig, rat, rabbit, cow, elephant, crocodile, monkey, ape, kangaroo, wolf, parrot,

  What animals are dangerous? How dangerous are they?

Present a diagram on the Bb to help the students:


  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10

  Ask the students to put the names in the right order to show how dangerous the animal is. For example, a parrot might be 2 on the scale, for it can bite your finger. Then put the students into groups of four to carry out the task. The teacher goes around and helps them with spelling if necessary. Get one student from each group to report their discussion. Collect some names of animals on the Bb.

Step III Watching

Page 68. Read the picture on top of the page. Answering the following questions:

  What can you see in the picture?

  …House, garden, a big tree, a woman, a sleeping baby, a lion bending over the baby.

  Imagine what will be the story. Appoint a bunch of students to make up a simple story according to the picture. There stories may be different from the text.

Step IV Listening

  Tell the students “we are going to read a story called Escape from the zoo”. Give them to read the text quickly to work out the question:

  A tree fell onto its cage in the hurricane.
