A lesson plan to introduce young learners to this festival, celebrated in Turkey and Iran to mark the beginning of spring. Pupils match sentence halves and identify the corresponding picture to learn about the traditions associated with this holiday, from painting eggs to (don’t try this at home) jumping over a fire. The activities consolidate sentence formation, the present simple and everyday vocabulary words.
