Task Description
Let's imagine that your students are researchers and they meet a magical creature at the ocean floor that can speak English. The researchers will interview the squid and try to find out more about its life. Students are asked to unscramble the interview questions of the research team in this video quiz. Then one by one, ask these question from each other (Role A: researcher, Role B: Googly Squid). You can also have students mingle during the whole exercise and do the Q&A with a new partner for each new question. I created this class after attending Jamie Keddie's webinar about using video in the ELT classroom. See this blogpost of his: https://oupeltglobalblog.com/2017/07/27/using-video-in-the-elt-classroom/ And here's Jamie's lesson plan: http://lessonstream.org/2017/09/13/google-eyes/ Thanks, Jamie!

Scene summary
The ocean contains 99% of the living space on the planet. Less than 10% of that space has been explored by humans. 90% of the volume constitutes the dark, cold environment we call the "deep sea". The Nautilus team ventures into the deep sea, and bumps into Googly Eyes, the funny-looking squid at an astounding depth of 900 meters.

Lesson Plan

1. Ask the students to name a few animals that live in the ocean. Ask them if they know how deep they live. This BBC website will give you some background facts about this topic: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-17013285#panel7
2. Tell the class that they are going to watch a short scene showing a strange ocean creature.
Follow-up tasks
