IntroductionThe teacher tells the pupils about the today’s lesson and its objectives. He/She explains the students that the lesson will have two parts: the first part of the lesson will be language part, and in the second part the pupils will be working on their computers and creating an application for Android smartphones.
MotivationThe teacher asks pupils to take a sheet of paper and write as many names for body parts in English as they know. The teacher asks if someone has more than 10 names of body parts. The pupils who have lists with more than 10 names of body parts step forward and read their lists while pointing at the mentioned body part.
Main partThe teacher shows the picture of human body with names of body parts in English. He/She points to body parts and says the name of a body part in English. The students are then instructed to repeat after the teacher. They are not allowed to take any notes and try to remember the maximum number of words.
After the teacher finishes, volunteers come in front of the class and
do the same thing as the teacher did. The other pupils can look at the picture of a human body with names of body parts and correct the volunteer if he pronounces something wrong or points at the wrong body part. Optionally, they can organize a competition to see who is the best.
Students are then divided into groups. Each group has to choose a so-called Christmas tree, a student on which the others will stick post-it notes with names of body parts in English. Students are given five minutes for this activity and afterwards the teacher checks whether the groups placed post-its on the appropriate body parts.
The fourth activity is a game in which the teacher says the name of a body part and the students have to point at that body part. Whoever points at a wrong body part has to sit down and cannot continue the game.
The students, in pairs, then move on to creating an Android app that can be used for teaching and practicing the body-related vocabulary. The students are first instructed to find an image of a human body which will be used in the application and to open MIT App Inventor on their computers. The task is to make an application which will allow the students to color different body parts by practicing vocabulary at the same time. The students are then given step-by-step instructions on how to create the app. If they have any difficulties, the teachers are ready to jump in. It is important to mention that this lesson consists of two classes of 45 minutes each.
When the students finish their apps, they are instructed to go to Google Play and to download MIT Companion to their Android phones. Then, they create QR codes for their apps and scan them with phone cameras, which starts the apps on their smartphones.
5’ Evaluation:KahootAt the end of the lesson, the students play a quiz on Kahoot, which contains questions from the language part of the lesson. The students log in with the password given by the teacher and in the end we declare a winner.
