New Year, New Me

Teach the students about different new year traditions

Activity to get students into the groove after being away.

Step 1
Students will guess which country has the tradition.

Step 2
Students listen and learn more. After dictation, they check their understanding, do a short writing activity and finish with a short interview with their partner.

Added a mini presentation about the UK, and added some sound!

      Whoa! Is that vector art of the New Crown characters? Now you can enjoy crisp Emma even at 4K!

      Cool. A teacher was just asking me for a new years presentation. Usually I just tell them all we do is sleep off hangovers on New Years but I think I'll use this instead. Thanks.

      I love the New Crown characters :,)!

      Hope it works out well, I've done this before and they enjoyed learning about different traditions!

      Thank you! Today I used the pptx. It was a fun, quick way to get into the first lesson of the year.

      Cool PPT, thanks! Is it just me or does "for 108 times" sound incorrect?

      Thank you ! I fixed it and took out the for.

      It's really fun introducing different New Year' traditions in a simple way.

      Thanks for the lesson! It's the first lesson I've used from ALTopedia, and it worked well in my SHS. The students get really into the quiz!
