National Geographic Learning brings the world to the classroom and the classroom to life. In this week's model English lesson for teachers of young learners we're going on a school trip — to the Arctic! This exciting video lesson gives us a sneak peek into National Geographic photographer, Cory Richards's world as he attempts to capture the perfect photograph of an amazing animal. As well as delighting us with incredible landscapes and nature, this lesson serves as a soft introduction to bigger issues. Why is Cory there? What impact will his photographs have? We'll also build a hands-on project by making a simple pinhole camera out of household objects! Join us to see how we can teach English, raise awareness of sustainability goals, and include engaging science projects all in one lesson!
