The Perfect Park Project target language: 'you can...' for permission., 'you can't...' for prohibition and imperatives.
The Perfect Park is the most fun park in the world. It's so much fun you can drop the grammar rules and call it the funnest park in the world. Students get a chance to design their own park and then report back to the class about what there is in their park and the park rules.
In the flashcards section there are playground flashcards that might be useful for this project as well as the following flash cards: a circus, a trampoline, a Ferris wheel, a roller coaster, a dunking booth, a funhouse, a petting zoo, bumper cars, bumper boats, a tunnel of love, a water slide, a rodeo, a clown, a magician, a swimming pool, a fountain, a skateboard park
There is... / There are ...
You can ... for permission and the royal 'you'
You can't... for prohibition and the royal 'you'
Time: The project can be done in a single lesson or spread out as small parts over 2 or 3 lessons. It also depends on how far you wish to go with the project. I think it's best to spread it out and give the write up portion to do as homework.
