The Procedure of the Lesson

  1. Starting point.

Good morning everyone! I’m glad to see all of you in good health and mood! Today we have an unusual lesson. It’s a Presentation Lesson, and its topic is “The Country We Live in”. The aim of our lesson is to improve your knowledge on the topic, to learn more interesting information about our country, to broaden our outlook, to develop your speaking skills, to watch pupils’ presentations, to play educational games.

  1. Warming Up.(Educational Games and Group Work).

So, let’s start our lesson with an educational game “Adjectives”. Tell, please, what is the English for ‘унікальний’ – unique; ‘відомий’ – known; ‘винятковий’ – rare; ‘привабливий’ – attractive; ‘незалежний’ – independent; ‘рідний’ – native; ‘європейський’ – European.

Now, look at the first letters of our adjectives and what word have we got? – Ukraine. So, the topic of our lesson is Ukraine. Speaking about our country I want you to play another educational game “Block Buster”. This game is too popular among British pupils. I’ll divide you into two groups and each group has to guess the word after the listening to its definition. The winner is who guesses more quickly. So, let’s start!

  1. One of the six main areas of the land washed by water. (Continent)
  2. As a rule a continent is divided into these areas.(Country)
  3. The salt water that covers large parts of the surface and washes the continents, but it’s not an ocean. (Sea)
  4. A very high hill. (Mountain)
  5. A piece of cloth with a pattern or picture on it used as a symbol of a country (Flag)
  6. The number of people living in a particular area, city or country. (Population)
  7. A large and important town. (City)
  8. The main city of each country. (Capital)

Pupils, how are these words connected with our topic? Make up sentences with these words. The winner is who does it correct and quick.

Thank you, well done!

  1. Main part.

     Now imagine that you are the organizers of the meeting with foreign guests. They want to know some facts about our country because they are going to study and work in Ukraine. So, it’s high time to start your presentations.

  1. Geographical position and symbols (Report and Poster, program PowerPoint)
  2. Population.(Report and Poster)

Speaking about Ukrainians I want to mention that our Motherland is rich in outstanding people who became famous all over the world because of their achievements in history, culture, science, literature, education and so on. Last year we had the lesson-presentation “The Greatest Ukrainians’. Pupils made up the list of famous Ukrainians. Ideas and thoughts were different, but as for the first place Taras Shevchenko was supported as a winner. You can see some of the projects on the wall. Pupils named Yaroslav the Wise, Prince Volodymyr, Bohdan Khmelnytsky, Ivan Mazepa, Mykhailo Hrushensky, Borys Paton, Serhiy Koroliov, Mykola Amosov, Lesia Ukrainka, Ivan Franko, Leonid Kadeniuk, Serhiy Bubka, Ruslana and others. So, we are proud of our well-known people.

So, let’s go on our presentation.

  1. Ukrainian traditional holidays and celebrations. (Report and Poster)
  2. Ukrainian traditional folk crafts and cuisine. (Report and Poster)

To learn the country better we have to know the places to visit.

  1. Famous places of Ukraine. (Program PowerPoint)

Our presentation wouldn’t be enough without information about Kyiv.
