- The pupils should do the activity in the book, following these steps: colour the baby chick yellow; stick pieces of shiny paper on the eggshell; draw the nest below the eggshell.
- Extension activities. For example:
- The students should bring different photos or drawings of animals to class and glue each image in the middle of a white piece of paper. Have them cut out pieces of shiny paper of various colours the same size as the image.
- Reinforcemet activities. For example:
The children can use the Internet to find various arts and crafts activities from this unit. For example, they can look at this web page:
7. Methodology/ class distribution / timing:
·         Methodology and class distribution:
These are the four aspects on which the CLIL approach is based:
- Autonomous learning.
- Cooperative learning.
- Task-based approach.
- Learner centred.
There are also other aspects to bear in mind:
- Students will be in contact with significant communicative and comprehensible data, which are near to their interests.
- The previous knowledge of the unit will be taken into account.
- Students should learn to learn, they should be provided with strategies that will allow them to develop autonomous learning.
- We should promote the pupils' positive attitude towards the Foreign Language, towards the peers and themselves, giben the importance of emotional factors in present-day society.
it must facilitate both individual and group learning
  • Timing:
This DU will be carried out through two weeks. It consists of 6 lessons
and this would be session number 2. Each session is divided into the
following parts: warming up activities, input, practice, reinforcement and out of class activities.

8. Resources / Materials:
Books, note-pad of drawing and fotocopies.
School usual material: pencil, rubber, colors, etc.
Entre los materiales que vamos a usar para llevar a cabo las actividades AICLE y para soporte y apoyo de las mismas (andamiaje) estarán:
·      Presentaciones y vídeos que se van a usar:
~                Webquest Visita a la granja:
~                "Baby Einstein Baby animals" at
·      Ejercicio interactivo sobre animales con quizlet: Primero se escuchará la pronunciación en la presentación y a continuación se pasará sin voz para que los alumnos sean los que pronuncien.
También hemos creado una presentación de animales que pueden ser mascota de los niños y se la enseñaremos para motivarles y para reforzar el vocabulario.
·      Elaboración de andamiaje mediante tabla, donde los alumnos deben escribir el nombre o imagen correspondiente y se hará al finalizar la unidad. Sirve para apoyar tanto al contenido lingüístico como al de la materia.

9. Basic Competences:
All through this unit, we will deal with all the basic competences, but specially with the following ones:
-       Cultural and artistic competence: Students will develop these competences through the contents in this unit.
