Where are the aliens?

Where are the aliens?

Lesson overview

This lesson plan for Upper Intermediate students focuses on building their vocabulary around the theme of alien life and getting them comfortable with defining and non-defining relative clauses.



We’ll kick things off with a fun activity where students talk about how they feel when they see pictures of aliens.



Next, students will watch “The Fermi Paradox — Where Are All The Aliens?” This video will set the stage for a lively discussion. After watching, they’ll tackle questions that dive into the video’s key points, encouraging both simple and deeper thoughts.



In this part, students will work on using defining and non-defining relative clauses correctly, with some clear examples to guide them.



Then, it’s time for some hands-on practice. Students will fill in gaps in sentences and match words to their meanings, applying what they’ve learned.



Students will read an article about the Fermi Paradox and answer some challenging questions to make sure they’ve understood the material.



The lesson ends with a discussion facilitated by a poster of the solar system.
