1. Начало урока. Greeting / Warming-up
T. Dear friends, today we are reading, talking and listening about a large continent in the Southern Hemisphere, which was called terra australis incognita, or “the unknown southern land” – Australia in the medieval times. We are going on a virtual trip to this wonderful country. People travel a lot for varied purposes and could you please give me the reasons they do.
P1 – to have a rest, for pleasure
P2 – to improve foreign languages
P3 – to exchange experience
P4 - to see new places, make new friends
P5 - to get some information
T. Our lesson is mainly aimed at revising what we already know about Australia: its geographical position, climate, administrative division, sights etc. You will be able to get more information about this continent while watching and listening to the presentation.
2. Основная часть урока
2.1.Team-based presentation (групповые выступление учащихся по презентации; (подготовленная речь)
|SLIDE 2,3||Nowadays when people speak of Australia they can mean three things:
1) Australia as a continent;
2) Australia as an island and
3) Australia as an independent country.
Australia is the world’s largest island and its smallest continent.
To the west of Australia stretches the vast Indian Ocean. In the east the continent is washed by the Pacific Ocean.
Australia is a land of striking differences. In the centre of the continent and in the west more than 50% of the land is desert — dry and uninhabited. There are three deserts there — the Great Sandy Desert, the Great Victoria Desert and the Gibson Desert.
In the northeast, tropical forests cover the coast. In the mountains of the southeast the snow lies for seven months of the year.
Australia is divided into six states and two territories.
|SLIDE 4||The state of Western Australia is dry and inhospitable except the southwestern corner of the state. Nearly all of the state’s farms, sheep stations1 and fruit gardens are situated there. The rest of the state is dry desert land with very few towns or lonely cattle stations.|
|SLIDE 6||South Australia is the third largest state. Most of South Australia’s people, farms and industry are in the southeastern part of the state. Adelaide is the capital and the largest city. Most of South Australia is too dry for farming. Farming very much depends on irrigation. Some of Australia’s most unproductive desert lands occupy the greater part of the state. Wheat and fruit (apricots, pears, peaches, nectarines and grapes) are grown along the lower part of the Murray River.|
|SLIDE 8||New South Wales is Australia’s leading industrial state. Most people live along the east coast, and most of them are in Sydney. Sydney is also the largest city in Australia.|
|SLIDE 10||Queensland is Australia’s second largest state. Brisbane, its capital, is situated on the east coast. Queensland has long beautiful sandy beaches. Its coast is a popular place for holidaymakers. The climate along the east coast is hot and humid. It is the tropical corner of Australia. Bananas and other tropical fruits are grown here. Most of the land in the south is too dry for farming. Some of Australia’s most unproductive desert lands occupy the bigger part of the state.|
|SLIDE 12||In Victoria most people live in the south. Melbourne is the capital of the state and the largest city. Sheep and wheat are the main products here. Citrus fruits, grapes, peaches and apricots are grown along the Murray River.|
|SLIDE 14||Tasmania, the island state, is sometimes called the apple isle because it produces most of Australia’s apples. Tasmania is one of the few places in Australia that have enough rain all year. Tasmania is Australia’s leading producer of pears and berries of different kinds. Potatoes are also grown in some areas.|
|SLIDE 16||Northern Territory is the least populated and least developed part of Australia. Crocodiles still live in some of the swamps along the coast. Darwin is its capital and the only large settlement in the north. Alice Springs, generally called Alice of the Alice, is the only town in the south.|
|SLIDE 18||The capital of Australia is Canberra. The city doesn’t belong to any state. It is situated on the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), which occupies an aria of 2,432 square kilometres.|
