By the Sea
The “By the Sea” theme fits with the content of many course books. The association
with holidays, animals and recreation makes it an engaging topic for many students
without being specifically oriented to a particular age group. This theme would
fit into lessons based around holidays, travel, recreation, geography, animals,
especially marine animals, sports and possibly food
You may need to introduce some of the words, such as “sedimentation”, to the class
before proceeding with an activity. This is especially true if students are lower
intermediate students or younger children. In general, the sheets are best used
after studying the vocabulary.
Be ready to answer questions and provide clues if necessary to help groups with
each activity. The pictures on each sheet provide additional clues, and you can
augment them with your own pictures of beach activities, boats, fish and anything
else related to the sea.
