Could you actually live on Mars?

ESL news-based lesson plan

Lesson Overview

This ESL lesson plan deals with the theme of Space and Space Exploration. Students will learn about different aspects of  Mars such as its geography, climate, and planetary features. 

It focuses on practising critical skills in listening, speaking, collaboration and critical thinking.  If used as a flipped ESL lesson, you will need at least 90 minutes to complete this lesson. However, lessons can run up to 3 hours ( consider two  90-minute lessons or for university teachers to adjust as needed).

While targeting intermediate and upper-intermediate English language learners, it is highly adaptable as it has been purposely designed to facilitate mixed-level classes. This includes targeting professionals in a tertiary institution such as a university or professional environment.
