This lesson raises learners’ awareness of some of the reasons for vegetarianism and helps them develop their reading and speaking skills.
In the lesson, learners first think about their own eating habits before discussing their initial thoughts and ideas related to vegetarianism. Then they do a jigsaw reading task with an article about vegetarianism, with each learner reading a different section and making notes before regrouping to share what they learned. Next they plan arguments for and participate in a role play, before exploring vegetarian recipes as part of a mini-project.
