The Final Frontier?

The activities in this lesson were inspired by the song, Space Oddity by David Bowie. They draw on the song, its lyrics, the video and the themes surrounding the song.

The theme here is concerned with pushing the boundaries, hence the title. As you can imagine, it deals with space travel, but there is also much more to be explored!

The learning skills here cover reading, writing, speaking, listening, and of course some grammar.

The vocabulary feature is on words related to space travel and understanding more on phonetics. There are a couple of authentic texts written specially for this lesson that lead on to a discussion, a writing exercise and of course some fun activities!
