Amazing world of animals

The Amazing world of animals, by Carol Read, is a project for Young Learners, designed to simultaneously build up learners’ language skills and knowledge of the animal kingdom. The project is divided into six lessons and leads to a final outcome of children creating a group e-zine/magazine with the title ‘Amazing world of animals’. In each lesson, children find out about different aspects of the animal world and produce a piece of work to include in their e-zine/magazine.
