Warmer/ Lead in. Professions. All levels. 20 min.

Music video by Carrie Underwood performing All-American Girl.

 

Warmer/ Lead-in

 

If your aim is to revise or introduce "jobs" to your students this activity suits perfectly as a warmer. 

 

Procedure.

1 - Write the word "jobs" on the board and elicit examples from your students.

2 - Give them some feedback and teach other kinds of jobs that will appear on the video. ( you can prepare a matching exercise as a "before watching" activity as well, to pre-teach vocab).

3 - Arrange your class into trios or fours, and ask each group to choose a leader. This boy or girl is going to be the only person who will write during the activity. 

4 - Tell your students they will watch the music video and whisper all jobs they see in the leader's ear, so that s/he can jot down the words in a sheet of paper.

5 - The winner group is the one with a longer list of jobs, spelled correctly.

 

These are the jobs shown in the video: ( in order of apperance)

 

Painter, firefighter, doctor/obstetrician, chef/cook, Ms. America/Universe, Swimmer/athlete, nurse, cowgirl, waitress/server, police officer, photographer, footballer/ football player, soldier/military, flight attendant, cheerleader, newscaster/journalist, teacher, graduate student, seamstress/stylist, ballerina/dancer, high school/university student, welder, scientist/chemist, politician/president, veterinarian & astronaut.

 

Enjoy !
