Creating energy sustainably

Here is a jigsaw reading on the topic of interesting ways to generate energy, whether it is to power a ship or a disco or charge up your mobile phone!

This lesson plan can be used with B1 level students and above, and the video of the disco that generates electricity from people dancing is a great way to show that sustainable living is FUN!

Eco-tourism: travel by train

Did you know that taking the train instead of flying is much more environmentally friendly? Travelling by Eurostar creates ten times less carbon emissions that flying the same route! Not to mention it’s more fun and you get to see more – it’s the journey, not just the destination, after all!

Language teaching course-books rarely focus on this great way of travelling, but here is an internet lesson lesson that does just that.
