T:Boys and girls, have you seen the movie Zootopia? Do you like it? Ss: Yes! T: But this morning, the mayor Lion finds out that 3 animals are missing, but we don’t know their names. Everyone in the zootopia is worried, so the mayor Lion asks Judy (rabbit) to find out the missing animals.

(Mayor Lion tells Judy that each animal has left  a clue)

T: Judy is alone, can you help Judy?

Ss: Yes!

T: OK. Let’s go with Judy!

T: This is the rainforest district,have you seen any clue?Read it aloud.

Ss: It’s thin. It’s red. It has a small nose .It has a big tail.

T: What is it?

Ss: It’s a fox.

T: Here we are at the Sahara square. Let’s read the descriptions and choose one animal from the three.

Ss: It’s tall and strong. It has a big head. It’s brown.

T: What is it?

Ss: The lion!

T: This is the Tundratown,have you seen any clue?No?Oh,now it’s our turn to describe the ox.

Ss describe the ox using It’s …/ It has…

Highlight by the hit movie Zootopia, and create a scene of finding the missing animals. Students will be on an exploration while learning the key sentences: “It’s (so) tall/short/…", “It has…”







Guess riddles of animals with your friends, and try to use key expressions.
