The chicken nugget experiment- a free downloadable lesson

A free downloadable lesson based around a video of British chef, Jamie Oliver, demonstrating exactly what does go into cheap chicken nuggets to a group of American children. It’s pretty revolting, but the children reckon it’s ‘awesome’..and there’s a surprise at the end.

The lesson is at two levels, Lower Intermediate (A2+) and  Upper Intermediate (B2+). Both versions introduce a set of vocabulary for talking about junk food, and both have a variety of discussion tasks and questions. The lower level version also introduces some functional language for giving opinions and agreeing and disagreeing, while the higher level version looks at how to use contrast markers, although, even though, despite etc.

    I love this video! Great choice :)
    I also liked how you linked it with the current horse meat scandal.

    A really good lesson plan that ties in with the local horse meat scandal. I always like lessons which get students to think about the world we live in.

  5. Great topic and excellent for modelling speaking & listening skills. So hard to find things like this that work in the classroom. Thanks for sharing! :-)
