Lesson Plan 2: Greetings from...
Students will be able to read a greeting from a postcard and match it with the correct famous point of interest and city.
Pen or pencil
Any postcard for opening
- Begin activity by asking students if anyone has ever received a postcard. Have students share from where they received postcards and which were their favored places they received postcards from.
- Then have the class do the “Circle Time Pass it Along”. Procedure is as follows:
The class sits in a circle. Child A gives a postcard to child B sitting next to him. Student says: “This is a postcard”. Child B asks A: “From where?” Child A: “From France.” Child B gives the postcard to the next child C and says: “This is a postcard.” Child C asks B: “From where?” Child B asks A: “From where?” Child A says to B: “From France.” Child B says to C: “From France.” Child C gives the postcard to child D and says: “This is a postcard.” Child D asks: “From where?” The whole process goes on until the postcard reaches child A again. Another postcard can be added to make the whole process more difficult.
- Next, tell the class that they have to solve a quiz. They have to guess where the postcards on the Worksheet came from. Hand out Worksheets 2 and 3 and have students complete them.
Work can be collected or answers can be checked orally.
