The article came from BreakingNewsEnglish, but it has been heavily edited to suit my students.
I give the article for homework. The next class we do the gap fill, vocabulary, and questions.
Afterwards students work with partners or in groups to complete the various activities.
The students especially enjoyed the song. You can listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWE6seINeoE
For the class activity, I gave each student a colored card. On the back of the blue cards I wrote some questions, I gave blue cards to the weaker students.
This lesson is designed for a 2 hour class.
