Activity 3:

Creative oral project

[lo 5.3.1]

This team presentation is built around the individual talks by the members of your group.

It will be assessed by your classmates.

Each group in your class must prepare an oral project on ONE centre of interest: Animals .

The topic is: all creatures great and small

Appoint “office holders” who will be responsible for certain duties.

These appointments will rotate for different group projects.

The leader is responsible for. . .

  • maintaining discipline in the group.
  • ensuring that everyone takes part in the discussions.
  • making sure that only English is spoken during the discussion.

The scribe is responsible for . . .

  • taking notes to record what has been said by whom.

The administrator is responsible for . . .

  • listing the members of the group.
  • writing the main topic down neatly.
  • writing each individual topic next to members’ names.
  • delivering this information to the educator who will file and use it for assessment.

The spokesperson must . . .

  • present the group and announce the topic.
  • introduce each member in turn.
  • act as host / master of ceremonies / chairperson.

How does a class theme work?

  • Each group of five members chooses an animal topic.
  • Divide the topic into sections or facets of the same topic.
  • Each member now prepares one section or facet.
  • The prepared speeches must be presented as a team effort.
  • Consider the time limit you have been given.

Choose and organize a topic:

Here are a few “animal” ideas which might inspire you.

Use them as they are or apply the pattern to an idea of your own.
