Open your Eyes to Pavement Plants - E1 version
A set of Entry Level 1 Functional English tasks based on an article from Spring 2020 about finding wild plants in towns. Designed for a mixed ability class so that everyone could be working on the same theme. [An E2-3 version is also available]. Includes multiple choice comprehension questions; sentence writing, punctuation and alphabetical order questions; and speaking and listening activities.
Plus an accompanying pavement plants word bank crossword (full words given, rather than clues) with plant finder poster.
One of a set of exercises finding positive topical themes to explore in lockdown, written as worksheets to send out to maintain engagement for learners who had no IT access. Answer sheets were then sent out the following week for self-assessment. Came in handy again for lockdowns mark 2 and 3, and for post-lockdown.
Detailed Functional Skills mapping, answers and teaching notes [9 page PDF] are available to resource contributors only.
