Great Toy Robbery

This lesson is simple and a wonderful way to celebrate X-mas. Get more Xmas video ideas on ELT Buzz’s  Xmas video page.

1. Watch The Great Toy Robbery. Put students in pairs and have one watch the screen, the other look away. Partner A describes what he is watching to Partner B who can’t see. Switch partway through.

2. Watch again and pause, noting vocabulary (or make a worksheet). Discuss and point it out in context.

3. Students retell the story or retell as a writing exercise. Lots of other creative extension ideas possible too!
