A science-fiction storyю
The spaceship flew around the planet several times. The planet was blue and
green. They couldn’t see the surface of the planet because there were too many
white clouds. Then the spaceship descended slowly through the clouds and landed
in the middle of the forest. The two astronauts put on their space suits, opened
the door, climbed carefully down the ladder and stepped onto the planet.
The woman looked at a small control unit on her arm. " It’s OK,” she said to
the man. "We can breathe the air. It’s a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen.” Both
of them took off their helmets and breathed deeply.
They looked at everything carefully. All the planet and animals looked new
and strange. They couldn’t find any intelligent life.
After several hours, they returned to their spaceship. Everything looked
normal. The man turned on the controls, but nothing happened. "Something ‘s
wrong " he said. " I don’ t understand. The engines aren’t working”. He switched
on the computer, but that didn’t work either. " Eve "he said "we ‘re stuck here.
We can’t take off ".

(Показ Слайда 4 к
1. I took the poem and cut it into the pieces.
You will listen to the poem two times. Don’t turn over the pieces for the first
time. While listing the second time put these pieces into the order.
Look at the slide and check your task.
(Показ Слайда 5 со
стихотворением для проверки.)
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretched in never – ending line
Along the margin of a bay.
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
2. The next task. You can see the empty plastic
Please think a little and say in turn from each team how to use these bottles
in order not to make garbage.
VIII. An apple as the world.
After relaxing I want you to be serious and think about the problems of our
planet. Look at this apple. Now use your imagination and say what does the apple
look like ? It looks like our earth.
I cut the apple into (4) quarters.
Three quarters of the Earth’s surface is water and only one quarter is land.
I cut the piece, represented the habitable land , into four pieces. Only 0,25
(a quarter) of the Earth’s habitable land is where all the Earth’s food comes
from. You can see that it is a very little piece and we should take care of it.
