MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • WeatherChat attachment: Cut this worksheet into 2 (A and B).

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  • After teaching "How's the weather in ~?" and "It's~", hand out worksheet A to half the class and worksheet B to the other half.
  • Side A asks in a big voice "How's the weather in Aomori?", side B should give the answer on their worksheet ("It's ~"). Reverse roles with B asking about Hakodate.
  • Have side A draw the weather for Aomori and side B draw the weather for Hakodate in the cities' boxes.
  • Students walk around, find a partner from the opposite team and repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 in pairs with new cities.
  • When students finish their maps they sit down and answer weather questions for unfinished students.

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • HRT and ALT should consider do a role play to demonstrate how to ask and answer questions.
  • Change one of the cities to the city students live in or where the school is located at (Change the name then drag the pointer to your school`s location using the yellow dot at the end). Or use cities that students are studying.
  • For lower grade/level classes, don't move to step 3 unless students have mastered step 2 as a class. Also write the cities' names in Hiragana (only for classes who haven`t been taught the alphabet).

概要: 日本の天気予報をするため、児童はお互いにインタビューします。

手順:

  • "How`s the weather in ~?" と "It's ~." を教えてから、ワークシート A が半分の児童に渡して、ワークシート B が他の半分の児童に渡す。
  • ワークシート A を持つ児童が大きい声で "How's the weather in Aomori?"を聞いて、ワークシート B を持つ児童はワークシートに書いた答え("It's ~")を答える。そして、ワークシートBを持つ児童は"How's the weather in Hakodate?"についての天気を聞く。
  • A を持つ児童は青森の天気を描き、Bを持つ児童が函館の天気を描く。
  • そして、児童は教室に歩き回って、天気が分からない場所について相手を聞く。
  • 天気予報を終わる場合、児童は席を戻り、終わらない児童の天気の質問を答える。

教える際のアドバイス:

  • HRTとALTは天気予報についての質問を聞くと答えることの例を児童に見せたほうがいいです。
  • ワークシートに一つの市が学校や児童に住んでいる市に代わります。または、児童が勉強している地理の市か県に代わります。
  • 低学年にとって、クラスと一緒にStep2を上手になるまでにStep3を行かない。そして市の名前がひらがなで書いたほうがいいです。
