Give your class a tour of London! Before you get started, pupils can brainstorm what they do and do not know about the city and discuss how they think it may have changed over the years. The provided video shows footage from London in 1927 and 2013 placed next to each other. Further discussion about how London has changed and how your pupils' hometowns may have changed follow the video.
- Extend the lesson to include not just London and your learners' hometowns, but also other famous cities that have experienced a lot of change over the years
- The resource also includes a homework assignment that asks individuals to find old videos of their own hometowns
- Plan is well-sequenced and provides plenty of opportunity for speaking and listening
