Teacher: Close your eyes, please and think of the driest places on our planet, the coldest places and the rainiest places.
Possible answers: the driest places are the deserts, the coldest are the Arctic and Antarctic, the rainiest places are the rainforests.
Teacher: You are right. Look at the globe. Here you can see the places we were talking about. Now we’ll read a very interesting text about our nature, about different places on our planet.
Teacher: Open your books and read this text attentively.
1.They are the driest places on Earth. It usually doesn’t rain there. The Sahara is like an ocean of sand. To travel in the desert you need “the ship of the desert” or the camel. The camel can travel in the desert for ten days without food or water. After that it gets very hungry and only eats and drinks for days.
2. The biggest rainforests are in the South America. The rainforest is a hot and wet place. It doesn’t often rain there. There are many trees and different plants in the rainforests. There are a lot of different animals there because there is a lot of food for them. Every year these forests are becoming smaller and smaller because people cut down trees to to sell wood or make new farms and roads. When people destroy the forest they also destroy many plants and animal homes.
3. The top and the bottom of the world are the coldest places on Earth. They are lands of ice and snow. But some animals live there. The Arctic is home to polar bears and they love its frosty, windy weather. Winter is the happiest time for bears because that is the time when they catch seals. For penguins the Antarctic is the nicest place in the world.
Teacher: Now let’s do some exercises.
There are a lot of animals in the rainforest because….
Rainforests are becoming smaller because…
