ESL Lesson Download: April Fool’s Day
By Teaching House Team of Trainers | On 25 Mar, 2014
Hey TEFL Teachers!
April 1st is fast approaching and you know what that means? April Fools!
Worried about that prank your students are planning to hit you with this year? Don’t sweat it! Because one of our amazing (and devious) CELTA Teacher Trainers, Fiona Mulcahy, has cooked up this clever prank for you to play on your students first. Ha! It’s an educational prank, of course, so don’t worry about getting in trouble.
Here’s how it goes:
1) Click below to download your Teacher’s Notes and Lesson Materials:
2) Load this You Tube video about a special breed of flying penguins (Spoiler alert: It’s an elaborate and fake creation by the BBC, but sshhhh! Don’t tell your students!):
3) Then load THIS You Tube video explaining the truth behind the BBC video (Just be careful not to show this to your students first or it will spoil the surprise!):
4) Sit back and watch your students practice their listening and speaking skills while getting punk’d by their teacher. Ha! Who’s the clever one now? (You are.)
Happy April Fool’s Day! We hope it’s a fun one (and that your students don’t retaliate too badly)!
If you and your students enjoyed this lesson, please leave a comment to let us know how it went!
