'Have to/ Has to'

A pair / information gap activity followed by fill-in-the-blanks and a short writing activity. The theme is Merida and her triplet younger brothers from the Disney-Pixar animation, Brave.

This is a pattern practice activity for the third person forms of 'have to'.
  1. Do a quick pronunciation check of the 4 character names and the verb phrases in the left hand column of the table.
    If the students are not familiar with information gap activities, you could do a demonstration with T1. Depending on the
    class, you might also get the students to repeat one question from each row of the table.

    Remind the students that each character has 2 jobs to do, so that once found, there is no need for further questions.

  2. After 5 minutes or so, check the answers. You could ask the whole class each question and then write marus and batsus
    on a table on the blackboard. They will need this information for Step 2.

  3. Students can work on Steps 2, 3 and 4 individually, in pairs, or in groups.

    Note: Brave was released 10 years ago, so not many second graders knew this movie.
