(another) EXTREME sports! sort-of low-level MG(3) - HS(1)
« on: October 01, 2010, 09:11:49 am »
Made for my sort-of low level MG(3) and HS(1) classes.

1.  First two slides of presentation are tongue twisters and review.  Change or delete slide 2 to reflect your own review.

2. Presentation.  I got the info from wikipedia as I don't know much about sports myself so please double-check and feel free to post corrections.  It goes over seven sports and includes vocabulary for three videos.

3. Videos.  BASE jumping (play full), street luge (I play 0:56 - 2:57 of this video), and surfing. 

4. Worksheet.  In small groups, students have to name one extreme sport from each category (air, land, water), then pick one and say the equipment it requires and why it is dangerous.

5. Assessment.  If there's time left, ask individual students what their favorite sport was, whether they would try it, and why/why not.

ATTACHED:  lesson plan, worksheet, presentation

EDIT:  I just got through this with my high school students.  The two lower classes finished with a minute or two to spare, but my most advanced class finished with ten minutes left!  For the advanced classes, I suggest answering the group questions as a class and then having a group activity of making up their own extreme sports.  I will try make-your-own-sport with my middle grade 3 students later this week.

BASE jumping
street luge (I play 0:56 - 2:57)

I used this lesson for one of my third grade middle school classes. the students liked the lesson. while we watched the video clips there were a lot of 우아! sounds. I only focused on AIR extreme sports and added one more video to the lesson. i thought i should post it here. the students really liked it. it also had a cool sound track. there's not a lot of English in the video except at the end. When there was English i restated the important/interesting parts i wanted the students to understand. I also brought up the keywords from the lesson like wing-suit, equipment, terrain, BASE jumping, etc as they watched the clip.

I used this lesson and it worked great with my MS Gr3's  Thanks so much for it!
I've also put together a little game of sorts to play in association with this lesson:

The Main page has a full card deck with points/change/steal behind each card.
I split the class into 3 teams.  Each team will take a turn picking a card from a deck I have.
Ex.  If they choose 3 of clubs then click on the 3 of clubs and it will jump to a slide with a sport on it.  The team will then need to guess the sport (clicking once will bring the name up) and also tell me what equipment is needed to play the sport.  Clicking on the Big card on the screen will go back to the main page revealing points.  Then the next team gets to go etc.

Hope you guys like it!

I've taken the sports card game and turned it into a hotseat/taboo style game, might not go down so well with intermediate classes, some of my students got quite angry at some of the more difficult ones but they also seemed to think the sports are quite funny
