This is a lesson plan which aims to promote a healthy eating and living lifestyle.
The plan is adapted from the textbook “English Treasure 1A” – “Fantastic Food”.
Since speaking is the development focus chosen, students are encouraged to speak in
English through pair work, group work, interviews, reading aloud and in-class
mini-presentation. It is hoped that students’ motivation and interest in learning
English can be maximized and their speaking skills can be enhanced.

Students will be able to:
        show their personal preferences and experiences through interesting interactive
        develop their speaking skills through interviews, discussion and presentation
        integrate and apply the vocabulary language items they have learnt in this
        chapter through meaningful tasks
