Task Description
The task is to identify 12 objects, mostly tools and tap them in the paused video: blueprint, saw, socket, ladder, hammer, vise, drill, mask, spark, paint roller, bucket, paintbrush. Many of the words are above pre-intermediate level, but they are made so obvious by the images that I think the task will be doable and meaningful at pre-intermediate level, as well.

Lesson Plan
1. Tell your students that they are going to watch a scene in which Wallace and Gromit are building a spaceship. Get them to guess which tools they will see in the video.
2. Watch the movie without the quiz and check how many of the tools on students brainstormed were actually seen in the video.
3. Watch again with the quiz. It is going to teach them the names of all the tools in the video.
