1. To review pet vocabulary play, ‘Arrange the flashcards.’ This can be played with teacher giving the
instructions or pupils playing in pairs. Pupils will need to put a book between them so they cannot see
each other’s cards. One pair chooses four pet cards and arranges them on the table. They say the
words in the order they arranged them. e.g. cat, goldfish, bird,rabbit. The other pair must choose from
their cards and lay them in the same order. The pair that says the words checks their answers.
The first time the pupils listen ask them to circle the correct answer:
1. The boy’s name is a) Solo b) Paul
2. The dog’s name is a) Bart b) Stan
5. The second time the children listen they must answer the questions:
a) What does Stan the dog eat?
b) What time does Solo feed Stanley?
6. Teacher asks the pupils about what kind of pet they would like to have. Teacher writes about
5 or 6 different pets on the board for the next activity.
The United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. A registered charity: 209131 (England and Wales) SC037733 (Scotland).
7. Pet Survey. Divide the students into pairs and give each pair one of the pets on the board. Ask the
pairs to write their pet on their notebook. Teacher tells them that they are going to find out which is the
most popular pet in the class. Teacher asks the class to think of the question they need to ask their
friends to see if they would like their pet. Write, ‘Would you like to have a pet _______ ?’ on the board
and drill the question and answer, ‘Yes, I would.’
‘No, I wouldn’t.’
8. Students move around interviewing their classmates and writing Y(es) or N(o) depending on their
classmates’ answers. After they’ve asked their friends, ask each pair to sit down and count how many
yes and no answers they have for their pet. Then they can write a sentence that looks something like,
Twenty-two of our friends would like to have a pet cat.
9. Ask the pairs to tell the class the number of students who said ‘yes’ and ‘no’ and write the number on
the board. If the class has 40 students, the answers should look something like this:
e.g. Cat Yes=22 No=18
Dog Yes= 2 No= 38
Fish Yes= 30 No= 10 etc.
After teacher writes up all of the answers, the class will know which is the most popular pet.
As a conclusion, each student decides which pet they would prefer and why. They can then share with
another student / the class.
10. Lastly, teacher may asks pupils to sing the song Bingo (Teacher can change the pet to cat if
dog is inappropriate for her students)
