Students watch the video up to 1.59 mins. Pairs tell each other what they remember. Pairs imagine an ending to the story and write it down. Students read their ending to the class. Show the rest of the video to the class.

This great activity was created by a colleague, Eloisa Paula. THe focus of the class was Reported Speech. A student of hers showed her a video in which a little kid gets stuck behind the couch. Then, what she did was, the moment the student showed them the video, she elicited some sentences said by the little boy and asked the students to REPORT what the little kid said.
I don’t want to tell you.I want to get out of the couch.And now I need some help getting out.I want to get out of here.Help!I’m sinking!I need some help!Thanks for saving me!Now, could you get the police car and the ambulancethat are out there?
ask students to write the heading for two lists in their notebooks (CITY LIFE / NATURE) Students watch the video and have to complete the lists by writing down vocabulary related to each topic as it appears in the video. Debriefing: ask students what words theyve written down. In pairs students discuss what they understood about the video.
I used this video w/ a group after having taught the usage of USED TO (past habits) WHILE watching: ask sts to make sentences w/ used to about the video Ex: The man used to ...... The boy used to ......... AFTER watching: Write down some sentences sts have created. Pairs make sentences about their past habits.
You can use this activity as a warmer after having taught Future verb tenses.- Watch the video beforehand in order to select the best moments to pause it. - Then, in class, whenever you pause the video, ask sts "What´s HE going to do next?" to elicit sentences with GOING TO. - Show the part and see who guessed the right action. - Do the same thing, at various moments of the video. The video-activity is short, fun and interesting.
