Activity 1:

We will start the unit making a brainstorming. It is very important the teacher knows the previous knowledge pupils have about the topic of the unit. They will have to talk about

what they know of where we live and the teacher will write the ideas on the board. At the end, we play the video of the city. 

Activity 2:

The teacher reads the tale “The little and magic world” to the students. Then, they have to think over the moral of the story and give their opinion.

Activity 3:

Students have to create a “My place in the world” map by using different sides of rectangles. In each rectangle, students will draw, from the littlest to the biggest: theirselves, their

house, their street, their city/town, their province, their country, their continent and the world. The teacher can show some pictures on the interactive whiteboard to help children to

draw their province, country and continent.

Activity 4:

Each student may tell a personal experience about the places they have visited or even, they have lived. They have to think in the reason they were there or why they moved to the

current place.

Activity 5:

Students have to come up to the interactive board, mark an area of the picture and describe individually what they see helping them to produce sentences correctly. 

Activity 6:

Students have to find a detailed thing of the picture paying attention to gradual clues. For example: “It’s not on the ground. It’s on something made of stone. In fact, somebody is


holding it but this person is not alive…”

Activity 7:

The teacher shows some pictures of buildings and the students have to think which of them are in our town, what they are for… Listen to the teacher’s questions.Circle the answer. (Looking at the pictures)

Activity 8:

In pairs, students have to answer some questions and then, they will share their answer with their classmates. The questions are: “Do you think the class is in a city, a town or a


village?”, “Name some buildings you can see in the picture”, “Can you see an example of public transport in the picture?”, “Who is not behaving properly in the picture?”

Activity 9:

Once pupils have shared their answers, they will listen to a song about the topic and they will have to complete the gaps with the missing word.
