Teachers’ Notes

Aim

The aim of this lesson is for students to learn how to talk about the weather using the simple present.

New Vocabulary

Adjectives:

sunny, cloudy, rainy, snowy, windy, hot, warm, cool, cold

Target Structure

Examples:

What’s the weather like today? It’s cold and snowy. What’s the weather like in Paris? It’s warm and rainy.

Teaching the Class (before the handouts)

Use the flashcards at the end of this lesson to elicit and check your students’ understanding of the vocabulary and target structures.

After you’ve gone over the vocabulary and target structures, hand out page 1 and have your students write the new words for all the images. Next, hand out page 2 and have them write the questions and answers.

What’s the weather like?

Basic Grammar Sentences

Work in Pairs

Have your students work in pairs to complete the information gap. They’ll need to ask each other about the weather in each city. Students should write the answers in the boxes.

Now Work Alone

When they are finished the pair work, have your students try the follow-up activity to review their writing skills for this structure. (Make sure they are not doing the follow-up activity and pair work activity at the same time. These are meant to be done separately.)

Listening

For this task, you’ll need to decide what the weather is like in each city. For each city, choose one adjective that describes the temperature and another that describes the weather. Use both in your sentences. (E.g., It’s hot and sunny in Chicago.) Students should listen and circle two answers for each city. You may need to go over the city names first.

Reading and Writing

Have each student read the weather report out loud to their partner or group members. After they are comfortable with the reading and have answered all the questions, have them work together to write their own weather report. When they have finished and memorized it, have them try it out in front of the class. It’s a good idea to draw a world map on the board, or use a real one, when they are doing their presentations.
