Discovery Workbook – Festivals
There is a common theme that all festivals share whether they are based on religious dates, geological events, moments in culture or history, or music and that is that they bring people together. While some festivals have existed for hundreds if not thousands of years and have simple traditions, modern day music festivals are a huge undertaking that require millions to set up and attract hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. In this Discovery Workbook, you and your students will explore different types of festivals from around the world.
The beginner section looks at famous traditional festivals from around the world. It also introduces some vocabulary to talk about festivals. Students have to opportunity to talk about festivals in their country.
The intermediate section looks at modern-day festivals and compares the famous music festival Woodstock with a modern music festival, Tomorrowland. Students have a series of video-based activities and questions.
The advanced section introduces more vocabulary and idioms to talk about festivals. There are activities to practice and review the vocabulary. The main focus of the advanced section is a listening activity about the Diwali festival. There are comprehension questions and opportunities for students to talk about points raised in the audio. Answers are included.
Discovery Workbooks are suitable for both students and teachers. I make these workbooks to inspire and engage students. Each workbook has a variety of activities that make use of text, audio, pictures, and videos to give students the opportunity to fully learn English. The activities allow students to research on their own and become successful learners. To make the best use of the Discovery Workbooks I would advise you to have access to the internet. Discovery Workbooks are designed to take students on a journey through a topic, gradually increasing the difficulty of the material whilst attempting to connect everything together. I find that one Discovery Workbook provides enough materials for around about 2-3 hours of class time or more.
