They will show us their knowledge of the USA because our lesson is devoted to this country. We’ll speak about the sights, the traditions, interesting facts. We’ll have several tasks at the lesson. Some of them were prepared by you at home but most of them weren’t prepared. I hope our competition will be fun. The pupils who show the best knowledge of the USA will be given excellent marks. Let’s start our competition.

What are the names of the teams?

         Pupils: Our team is «Stripes».

                       Our team is «Stars».

Washington, D.C. is the capital of the country.

IV. Teacher: The second task is “Correct the mistake”. You will listen to a text about Washington, D.C. You know a lot of facts about this beautiful city. Now try to correct the mistakes. Be attentive.

 Washington stands on the Mississippi river.

Washington isn’t in any state. It is in the District of Columbia. That’s what the letters DC in the name of the city stand for. Washington is named after the second president of the USA. The climate is not severe here, although it can be too cool in the summer. The level of pollution is so high that it’s really horrible for people.

The White House is the home of the President and the First Lady. It is not possible for an ordinary people to go inside it. All the Presidents of the USA have lived here. There is four-sided stone structure which honours the “Father of the Country”, General, and the President of the USA-George Washington. The Jefferson Memorial can be seen from the White House. It’s a very wonderful place, surround by cherry trees. It was dedicated on the 200th anniversary of Jefferson’s birth so it was opened in 1903. There are a lot of museums here some foreign embassies are in Washington and some in New York.

Физминутка: Let’s do some exercises: Roll your eyes. Turn your head on the left slowly turn your head on the right. Let’s pronounce some sounds: [a, o, y, э, u]. That’s inuf. Thank you! Sit down!

V. Teacher: The USA is also famous for its writers and poets. Can you name any American writers and poets? The following task for you is “Guess who it was!” You should put the passages of the story in the right order, read them aloud, and tell me what American writer this story is about.

 The first story. He was an American author, journalist, and social activist. He was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction alone. Some of his most works include The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set in the Klondike of the gold Rush, as well as the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey Of the North" and "Love of Life"

The second srory. He was an American author and journalist. He was raised in Oak Park, Illinois. In 1918, he was wounded in the World War I and returned home.

Краткое описание документа:

Этот открытый урок я давала на районном семинаре учителей иностранного языка в 2012 году. Это был итоговый урок по теме «США». Дети активно работали на уроке, соревнуясь между собой в командах. Сильные учащиеся выполняли трудные задания: рассказывали о знаменитых американцах, о праздниках и традициях страны. Слабые учащиеся отвечали на вопросы викторины, рассказывали стихотворения, показывали на карте географические особенности страны.В конце урока осталось несколько минут, и мы спели песню на английском языке «sweet dreams»
