Role Play: Weather Reports
Students will learn expressions describing weather. They will be able to role-play giving a weather report from various cities around the world.
Students role play in groups according to the scenario on Tasksheet 2. A useful prop for this role play activity is a microphone. Microphones can be made from leftover cardboard tubes cut in half, with a ball of paper stuck in one end to create the shape of a studio mike.
Students form groups and choose an overseas city. The teacher can play the reporter in the studio as a rehearsal, then students in each group can take on that role. Another student plays the reporter on location in that city and the others can be local ‘people in the street’.
