Activity 1 Picture exploitation
Background notes
Bowling (Tenpin Bowling) has been a popular indoor game for a very long time. We know that it was
played in Egypt as early as 5200 BC. The rules for the modern game were
standardised in the USA in 1895. You try to knock all the pins down with two balls. If you succeed with
only one ball you score more points. Any number of people can play
the game. The 60s was a time when young people in the USA and Europe became particularly
rebellious and frequently went on demonstrations and political marches - at the end of the decade there
were riots in Paris. Rock music became very popular and provided a focus for rebellion and also a way
of experimenting with new ideas. It was based on the Blues music of black American musicians.
Particularly popular rock bands included the
Who, the Byrds, the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix as well as the Beatles. Solo artists, such as Janis
Joplin and Otis Redding, were also popular. Young people tried to make their clothes as outrageous as

they could, too. Big hairstyles were very popular and the
girls often wore very short skirts - mini-skirts.
T asks Ss: Who are the people in the picture? Where are they? What are they doing? What are
they wearing? Are they wearing any special clothes for bowling?
T uses the picture to teach some bowling vocabulary, e.g. ball, pins, a strike.
T asks Ss: What do you think the television screens are for? (To keep the scores) Have you ever done
any bowling/been to a bowling alley?

Activity 5 Grammar snapshot (Verbs will/won't, may or might for predictions)
With books closed, T writes some sentences of her own about the future on the board, leaving gaps
for will, may or might, e.g. /.....be at school tomorrow, It..the next World Cup, etc.
T asks Ss to decide how to fill the gaps. Ss discuss this in small groups.
T elicits answers from the whole class, checking the degree of probability, e.g.I.....be at school
tomorrow. Is this definite? (Yes) It ..rain this weekend. Is this definite? (No) Is it possible? (Yes)
T checks Ss understand that may and might have the same meaning here. T drills the sentences
briefly if necessary.
T elicits the negative forms from the whole class and practices briefly.
T elicits a question from the class, e.g. Will Italy win the next World Cup? Ss ask across the class
to establish the question form and the short answers, e.g. Yes, they will, No, they wont, They may/might.
In pairs, Ss think of three questions of their own. They ask and answer across the class for more
practice. If the class is large, Ss can practise in groups.
Ss read the examples in the SB. T elicits the answer to the question What is the difference in
meaning? as a final check.
